Get ready to see what nature has to offer us, from medicinal powers to useful tools. Sooke is one of the most bountiful places in Canada! I'll be teaching you ancient cooking techniques and what wild foods are out there to gather. We'll then prepare a meal together and enjoy the nourishment.

I'm inviting you into my home, a place where I have found to be lush with ingredients. It is a 8 acre private space that we are able to cook on fire when there is no fire ban. We'll take a short walk to Ella beach and see what seaweeds are available for us to use. Also we'll peak into the rainforest to discuss what plants can be used. I have a tipi on my land that is up when the weather is nice, we are able to gather there if it is available.
Prepare yourself to stay outdoors for some time. Good idea to bring; hat, warm clothes, cool clothes, comfortable walking shoes and a note pad. Also if you have long hair something to tie it back.
