fermentation and workshops.
We hope the plants and micro-organisms infuse you with their liveliness and that you find inspiration on your visit here.
We are honoured to create with them, and to share their gifts.
A full day of foraging and fermentation at Wheaton River Gardens
In this 6 hours hands-on workshop for all levels, focus will be on fermenting with local ingredients. Brine pickles with vegetables harvested from the gardens and wild sodas with plants harvested from the forest. Farm lunch by Wheaton River Gardens is included.
Are you in need of a little nudge to start exploring the medicine and food of the boreal forest?
This 3-hour beginner class is designed for the curious souls yearning to discover new ways to connect with nature when they’re on the trail. It proposes an introduction to the most commonly used wild plants and tips to identify them and engage with them in ways involving all our senses, heart and memory.
“All of us know that we are supposed to save the Earth, but how many of us has had the experience of the Earth saving us?
In many indigenous stories, the plants look at us as their children and it can’t be more true: through photosynthesis, plants changed the atmosphere of the Earth in such a way that allowed the emergence of our species.
They are our Ancestors.”
– Stephen H. Buhner
