We love wild things of all description, and we love to share knowledge about plants that we hope will help us grow and be healthy - physically, emotionally and spiritually. So, if you want to get together, get outside, and learn about wild-growing edible and medicinal plants, or just want to know what weeds in your garden can be put to good use in your kitchen, join us for guided wild-weed-walks, foraging excursions, wild herbal workshops, and other courses. Learn how to make your own herbal remedies and about safe, responsible, and environmentally-friendly foraging. And meet local foragers who will share your enthusiasm and their recipes and harvesting locations!
. *Some events are free; others will carry a fee, but, we do have a sliding scale fee-system for those who might need a bit of help to come out and join us. Just email Jennie to discuss. The idea is to be empowered and included, and work together for awareness and impact!
We have a website (http://itsawildthing.com)(in progress... but might be ready when you check). Take a look for our upcoming blog and homemade herbal products, like the awesome finishing salts made with locally foraged herbs, shown below. Sales of these salts go directly to the creation to Green-Belt Kids: a children's garden project to teach food security to thousands of children in the Niagara Escarpment region over the next few years. This project is in the planning stage. (If you wish to support Green Belt Kids, please contact me!). It's a Wild Thing forager's salts, and wild teas, can be purchased right off the shelves at Centro Gardens (http://www.centrogarden.com/) in Burlington.
