Join commercial harvester and chef Robin Kort for an easy stroll through Stanley Park’s forest and seashore to identify tasty plants, from cattails and native berries to umami rich seaweeds. We’ll discuss safety information, identification techniques and some simple cooking methods for the food you may find. Robin has been teaching foraging classes for over a decade and would love to meet you to pass on her knowledge. So, if you love to cook, hike, or are curious about the natural world, this walk is for you!
Note: This is not a harvesting trip – identification only!
