We will meet at a specified location. We'll walk on an easy hiking trail or path, stopping regularly to look at the various flora that we encounter, learning identification keys, nutritional or healing properties, herbal lore, ideal ways/times to harvest and work with the plants/trees, and answering any questions that come up with regards to the specimen(s) we're looking at. The walk will take two hours, but we will not cover very much ground in that time (maximum 1.5 km, often less than this) because we'll spend most of our time examining the plants in detail.
I'm a Registered Herbalist and wild foods enthusiast with close to 20 years experience working with local wild plants as food and medicine. I run a private herbal clinic at my farm in Prince Edward County, ON. I also teach classes on herbal medicine and I lead wild edible and medicinal plant identification walks all around the Quinte area from spring to fall. I've trained and apprenticed with herbalists and foragers on Vancouver Island where I used to live, and also in this area where I have lived for the past 10 years. I love to share with others all the benefits that plant medicines and wild foods offer us, and to help people identify and learn how glean the offerings of the wild plant realm. I believe this helps us to feel more connected to the place that we're in, and more gratitude for all that the earth provides us.
I always provide natural, effective bug spray to share with all participants.

The walk will take place in Delhi Park, Picton. It has accessible walking paths that go through wooded areas, open fields and alongside some wetlands. This gives us the opportunity to see different plants and trees that inhabit various ecosystems in our area.
