Local Plant Walk: Discover the History of the Human/Plant Relationships of the Calgary area
with Julie Walker of Full Circle Adventures
Wednesday August 12th
6:30 - 9:00pm
Sandy Beach area
Discover the history of the human/plant relationships of the Calgary area over time.
In this session, you will hear tales of local history through the native and introduced plants.
When learning about the plant uses for food, tools and first aid, it helps us remember the true nature of our local plants.
We will focus on a handful of native trees, shrubs and flowering plants to help you reconnect with our local land and build that deep sense of place.
Class size limited to 12 people.
After registration, a few days before the event, an email with all the details related to our walk including meet-up location will be sent to you.
About your guide:
Full Circle Adventures has been connecting people to nature for over 20 years. Our wild, edible plant walks, offer you a window into the intelligence of nature. We have learned from Hank Snow of the Nakoda Sioux, Tim Patterson of the Interior Salish, Canadian authors, such as Linda Kershaw and Terry Willard, as well as our own outdoor guiding and foraging experiences, regarding local edible plants. We hope to inspire a deeper connection for you, into the eco-regions you share with natures wild edibles. Learning from Nature brings us closer to our roots, our heritage and helps us gain knowledge about ourselves and about Alberta's landscapes. The relationships of the trees, plants and animals show us the natural community in the web of life. In becoming part of the web, we gain a sense of place and belonging to the land where we live.
