Invasive Plant ID and Edible Invasives workshop

It’s time to explore the edible and medicinal properties of invasive plants.

What makes a plant “invasive”, how do we identify them, how can we reduce their impacts, and what can we do to benefit from the plant?
Come join us to learn how to properly identify invasive plants and utilize their edible properties.
The goal is to prevent spreading of these species, while harvesting their beneficial properties and learning how to properly manage them.
There will also be recipes to share!

Dates: June 24th 1:30 pm-2:30 pm (PT)
This workshop is hosted with Okanagan College, register here
