Back for a third year, this fun weed walk introduces participants to all the wonderful, wild and weedy plants growing in an urban environment, that can be used as food and medicine.
We'll talk about:
If you attended last year's walk, come back again and see what happened to the poison ivy patch and check out how the native wood nettle is doing. And this year, I'll introduce people to a salad plant that grows on trees!
The walking tour will take place in and around Windsor Park near the Rideau River, on mostly paved paths. To get to Windsor Park, take Riverdale north from Bank St near Billings Bridge. Windsor Ave. is the first right. The parking lot is on the right at the end of the street.
