Feast and Forage with Your Kids: Edible Plants and Herbs Nature Walk

Edible Plants and Herbs Nature Walk

Location: meet at Larch Island
Date: Saturday, June 29, 2014
Time: Meet at 9:30 am 
Duration: 1 hour but can be more or less depending on you.
Cost: $20 per adult - kids free and this time your partner is free too!
Let's come together to explore, munch, learn, wonder, connect with nature and ourselves and celebrate the delicious unfurling and opening of Spring! (-: 
Kids love to experience nature through all their senses and we're so lucky in Canmore to be able to offer this to ourselves and them - we'll learn how to make salves, dandelion honey, immune teas and much more and what is and isn't safe to eat and when.

Looking forward to our time together! Happy Summer, Monika (-:

This is the beautiful answer an elder gave to a young boy who asked what to do if he got lost in the forest....

"Stand still. 
The trees ahead and the bushes beside you are not lost. 
Wherever you are is called Here, 
And you must treat it as a powerful stranger, 
Must ask permission to know it and be known. 
The forest breathes. Listen. It answers, 
I have made this place around you, 
If you leave it you may come back again, saying Here.

No two trees are the same to Raven. 
No two branches are the same to Wren. 
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you, 
You are surely lost. Stand still. 
The forest knows Where you are. 
You must let it find you."

Meet at the entrance to Larch Island in Canmore for an herb walk ~ $20 per person. If register before June 25th you can bring a friend or your family for free!
