Join Karen Stephenson, author of the field guide: "Fields of Nutrition" (http://www.ediblewildfood.com/) who will be sharing her wealth of knowledge of wild edible plants on an educational walk through High Park! Come on out and spend the afternoon learning about wild edible plants. Find out how to identify plants, how to harvest them, how to use them in the kitchen, and how to store them. Many of these "weeds" are actually very nutritious and medicinally useful as part of a daily diet or in a survival situation.

Although it isn't quite autumn yet, many of the plants out there are making it look like autumn. On this walk we will collect some goldenrod so you can take it home and make a massage oil or an oil for dressing. Please bring a bag for collecting and be sure to have olive oil at home waiting for you!

Cost: This MeetUp will be somewhat different. Payment ($20) must be made in advance of the walk and there must be minimum 15 people. Kids under 18 Free.

In the event of cancellation due to there being less than 15 Karen will refund or credit you for another walk. Should you pay and not show you will be credited for another walk only.

Please email Karen for payment options...

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
