Introduction to Wild Food Harvesting
June 11th 2017 from 11AM to 2PM
This 2-hour adventure is designed for students who have little or no knowledge of wild foods. On this tour, the students will explore the forests of the Laurentians with one of our experienced guides. They will be taught how to identify the 10 most common and easily identified wild edibles such as wild ramps, fiddleheads and mushrooms during the spring, and up to 100 others as the season’s progress. The tour will finish with a small demonstration of how to traditionally process and showcase the delicate flavors of the forest.
Our guests will learn how to identify and sustainably harvest wild edible and medicinal plants and mushrooms (103 identified) with our passionate and knowledgeable guides.
The teacher will be giving the course in french and will be able to translate the difficult parts. However, if you need full-time translation, thank you for noticing us. We cannot promise it, but if several students need it, we’ll arrange something.
The price includes a camping spot (an 8’x10′ platform) for one night. Please bring your own camping gear.
