Edible and Medicinal Plant Walk
Saturday August 12, 2017
1:00pm – 4:00pm
Did you know most wild plants are either edible or medicinal? In the hustle and bustle of our modernised lifestyles most of us are out of touch with the nature that surrounds us. We often don’t realise that even weeds in our garden can be delicious and nutritious foods and medicines.
This guided walk with medical herbalist and botanist Latifa Pelletier-Ahmed will focus on how to correctly identify edible and medicinal wild plants and distinguish them from potentially poisonous look-alikes.
We will also discuss the legality of harvesting in Alberta and how to harvest sustainably for the long-term benefit of the ecosystem.
Wild food and tea for tasting will be provided.
This walk will take place in Edworthy Park. Details on the day including where to meet will be sent prior to class date.
”It was very interesting to learn how to make natural concoctions from vegetation that grows in our part of the world Latifa was very approachable and knowledgeable. It was a most enjoyable day of learning.”

”The meet up was unbelievable! Out of this world really. What a gift to be able to learn from her. Latifa is a gifted presenter, knowledgeable.”

“It was really sweet to connect with fellow plant curious folks and learn – both through the walk and being connected with resources to take the learning further. Latifa is a wealth of knowledge and very approachable. Hope to make it to the next one!”
