What we're about

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 sustainable foraging. And meet local foragers who will share your enthusiasm and their recipes and harvesting locations!

We have recently created a meetup group for the Toronto area, with more foraging and herbal walks, events and workshops - visit here (https://www.meetup.com/Itsawildthingtoronto/) for this information. If you wish to learn more about who I am, visit here (https://www.meetup.com/itsawildthing/about/).

Stay in touch by following us on Instagram - follow Realwildthing.

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.

*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!
