New From Island Escapades: Interpretive Walk
Edible Plants of Salt Spring (with Traditional Pit Cook and bow drill session)
Join us every Saturday from 1:00 to 3:30 pm for an interactive afternoon learning about plant Ecology, edible plants and traditional Ancient ways. Learn to appreciate your walk through this temperate coastal rainforest. Learn about traditional ways of healing and the diversity of plants that you can graze on.
Salt Spring Island is a place full of biodiversity and home to many different species of plants. In this tour we explore that biodiversity and become comfortable with a variety of edible and medicinal plants. We spend time learning about ancient ways to cook and make fire and even prepare our own meal from local produce in the primitive way: with a Pit Cook. Come explore the sea shore and Mouat park on this 2.5 hour tour. We will gather foliage, prepare the pit for our food, go on our walk and come back to a delicious snack of local produce.
First session starts July 4th. Sign up at Island Escapades.
Every Saturday 1-3:30 pm. Cost is $40 Adults, $25 Students & Youth.
