2017 Workshops & Events

 

Foraging Walks:  Join us for a walk in one of London’s natural areas to harvest wild foods and learn the art of wild crafting. We will pick seasonal edibles, and talk about preparation and cooking techniques. The process of plant identification and best practices while foraging will be emphasized so that others in the present and in the future can continue to wild craft.

 

Pay What You Can (suggested 20$ adult, 10$ for 13 to 18 years old, free for 12 and under). No preregistration required. Check our website and Facebook for any changes the day of the event.

 

   

Thank you to Phoebe Say for this collection of images from a 2017 forage walk!

 

 

 

Thursday, July 20, 5:30 - 6:30 PM

10231 Melrose Drive, Komoka ON  N0L 1R0

This foraging walk will be on private property (the Barne's residence) just outside of London.

The money raised will help support the P.E.O Sisterhood Chapter M with their Philanthropic programs throughout North America and right here in Southwestern Ontario.

P.E.O is a women’s organization that raises money to help support and educate women of all needs and backgrounds.

We will do a slow-paced, one to one and a half hour, walk around the property through several different ecosystems. There will be light refreshments and some information about P.E.O. after the walk.

In the event of thunderstorms the walk will be rescheduled. In case of light rain please come prepared with rain coats and boots (and pants if you have them!). Umbrellas may be challenging in the forest so are not advised.

The cost of the walk is $20 for adults, free for children. Complementary refreshments after the walk (and of course, trail nibbles along the way...). There may be a raffle giveaway included with your ticket as well.
.

Please check here or the Facebook event at 2:30 tomorrow for an update as to whether it will be rescheduled due to the thunderstorms.

 

Wednesday, August 23, 5:30 - 6:30 PM at Carolinian Food Forest. Meet in front of Dillabough Community Garden at the south end of Dillabough St.


Sunday, September 17, 10:00 - 11:00 AM at Westminster Ponds. Meet in parking lot by the ReForest London offices (944 Western Counties Road).

 

*Host a workshop in your own home with at least 5 people registering and you attend for free! Scheduled at your convenience.
