Traditionally fall is the time when roots and berries are harvested for food and medicine. Join me and together we’ll identify wild edible and medicinal plants that grow around Brewer Park Pond. 

There are activities happening all weekend. Please check out the wonderful and rich weekend programme - http://treefestottawa.org
