Wild Foragers Society is celebrating it's fourth birthday this frolic — join us for sweet treats and spring delights!
In recognition of our four years, we'll be looking at spring plants in four categories: Roots, Shoots/Leaves, Flowers, Fruit/Seed. Even in early spring there is something to be found from each of these categories of plant life stages — and many that we can enjoy seeing and tasting! Think dandelion, burdock, nettles, maple flowers, motherwort, colts foot, Japanese knotweed and other friends. Meet us at Beechwood Drive and the Lower Don Recreational Trail (you can hop off the Broadview bus at Beechwood and walk down under the DVP, or bike/drive down Beechwood and park just before the trail) unlike other meetings wherewe've met at Broadview and Beechwood and walked down, please meet us AT the trail/end of Beechwood.
What to bring: yourself dressed for the weather — we go rain or shine, water/tea to keep hydrated, your favourite field guide, a pen/paper/phone to take notes or pictures with, and a trowel/spoon/digging stick if you feel excited about digging roots. We will dedicate the last half hour of the meeting to toasting four years of frolicking in Toronto together — please bring a small snack (wild or tame) to share with the group if you are able.
