Have you ever wondered “how do I stay well in winter?” From cottonwood buds to roots and rosehips, we encounter medicine and wellness as soon as we step outside. Join herbalist and Indigenous educator, Lori Snyder, on a special winter herbology walk, where you’ll learn about native plants, their natural uses, and how we can have a meaningful relationship with our environment in any season. There will be no harvesting during this program, but be ready to collect some lovely connections with plants, each other, and yourself!
Lori stewards a medicine wheel garden at the Moberly Arts and Cultural Centre. She is currently working with the David Suzuki Foundation as a Butterfly Ranger and consulting with both the foundation and the YWCA at Evelyn Crabtree on native plants and their importance in our ecological relationship with other living beings. She is the Artist in Residence at Hastings Community Centre for 2021, offering the teachings of plant wisdom through various art mediums.

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
