"I see the edible plants of the forest floor as a universal way, for people to realize the value, of nature's intact native landscapes. I have a strong conservation ethic, so I love the idea of re-wilding our gardens. My own garden is a great example of that, and I could feed four people throughout the year, quite easily with native plants!” – Julie Walker

Julie Walker is the owner and program director for Full Circle Adventures. She has a Bachelor degree in Physical Education (BPE), with a major in Outdoor Pursuits, from the University of Calgary.

Since 1987, Julie has built a successful career and business as a professional hiking guide, working extensively in Kananaskis Country, the Whaleback (Bob Creek Heritage rangeland) and Banff National Park.

Her focus is to build an understanding of wild food harvesting, through the plant and animal communities who depend on each other. This knowledge helps develop 'best practices', to protect the fragility of our natural food eco-systems.

Julie's vision; is to engage and educate landowners, gardeners, foragers and the  outdoor recreation community, about the value of preserving intact wildlands.

To inspire home owners to grow native, edible plants in their own backyards is a successful outcome.

In the Winter, Julie teaches entry level cross country skiing.
