Foraging Workshop with Camille!

Wednesday September 24th 2014 from noon-3, Camille will be taking us on a rad tour of the east van area, sharing her mad skills in foraging and plant identification!! 

Join us for this FREE workshop, and learn how to find food in the most unique places.

Camille says:

“I was a strange child. I loved mushrooms since I was a baby- not so much eating them, but rather the vibrant colours and shapes they manifested in. I grew up on acreage in South Surrey so was always mucking around in the bush, but mushrooms are what drew me into the world of collecting and identifying wild things. I also grew up gardening and my mother taught the names of plants, while my dad instilled an ethic of working with and for food. Although there was inspiration to forage everywhere I looked, the skill is self-taught, DIY, and continuously growing.
Mainly, I will probably be answering questions- that is what I have found the most interactive and efficient learning module. Besides that, I will be talking about food: how it is manufactured, and how eating the weeds is such an important part of responding to our harmful monocrop culture. Also, a fun topic is how foraging is also kind of like scavenging, and that people are either fascinated or pissed off by it. I like to use the crow as a figure in teaching us how people may view the scavenger. Of course, I want to give everyone a few hints on how to better identify plants and the families to which they belong. The point is to encourage people to take food security into their own hands. “
