Wisewood Apothecary Survival Plant Walks
Sunday, August 6, 2017 - 11:00am

"Join certified Practical Herbalist, Cheyenne Caza, for a walk in the woods as she shows you the edible, medicinal, and practical uses for plant life growing in Alberta. You will learn plant identification, sustainable harvesting methods, terrain and wild life safety, as well as plants that are suitable for building with, eating, and treating common survival oriented injuries and illnesses. Each route we offer provides different ecosystems, perspectives, and plant life, so do not be shy about joining us regularly.

All our Survival Plant Walks are BY-DONATION! That's right, you donate what you can (generally between $5 and $20 per person), no need to pre-register, just mark "going" on this event invite. The best part is that half of the funds raised are donated to a local charities or organizations. Monthly, we choose a new organization to support and for the month of August, the funds will be going to the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area for their efforts in protecting natural habitat and providing space for native species of wildlife to flourish. 

As always, a refreshing herbal BEVERAGE and a PRIZE DRAW is included with your donation! Please try and bring a mug so we can limit our use of disposable cups."
