Each ecosystem, and even small ecosites, offer different foraging opportunities. New in 2020 we're offering a foraging walk in the world’s largest land biome: the boreal forest. Meet up at the From The Wild basecamp, and learn about 10-20 species of wild edible plant and fungus, with a focus on their culinary use in the home kitchen. Wrap with a show-and-tell tasting of a sample of the From The Wild foraged pantry. 9am-noon. To keep group sizes down, we're adding 'Afternoon' walks that will run 2-5pm.
TIME 9am - 12pm
LOCATION - From The Wild Basecamp, 100km north of downtown Edmonton. Directions will be provided in confirmation email.
WHAT TO WEAR - We'll be outdoors, so check the weather forecast and dress appropriately. Even in warm weather long sleeves and pants are recommended. Wool is your friend when the weather gets chilly.
Full details provided by email prior to the event.
