Urban Foraging 101 is a fun, unique, info-packed class in which I teach you how to identify and sustainably harvest an amazing array of common wild edible and medicinal plants of the city. You will learn: safety tips, what to do with the plants at home (food, medicine, etc.), how they were historically used and resources for further learning. Our class begins with a walking tour; later we sit down as a group to meditate in a quiet place and tap into our intuitive connection with plants to explore an ancient way to learn about plants, using a mystery tincture. You will also have the opportunity to smoke (legal) wild herbs if you wish.
Classes are held from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends in the Alberta Arts neighborhood.
