CONCERNED ABOUT FOOD SECURITY? NOT SURE WHERE TO GET STARTED?

2020 highlighted the fragility of our food system, and many people are feeling urgency to take greater responsibility for their food and where it comes from. In light of the pandemic and the associated lockdowns, unemployment, workforce limitations, and rising food costs, we are witnessing an unprecedented interest in food security, local supply chains, health & wellness, and immunity. People want to take action, but where to begin?! 

This online workshop focuses on edible plants that are particularly useful in the context of emergencies. We will focus on widely-available wild plants, nutrient-dense “weeds”, and fast-growing annual plants that ensure a quick and abundant harvest.

Presented by EDIBLE LANDSCAPE DESIGN in Victoria, BC
