Mid Summer Blooms – July 7th 1pm-4 This time of year it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the ‘wall of green’ plants. Together we will learn to identify some of the abundance of wild plants in bloom!
Autumn Roots – Oct 6th 1pm-4 As the plants send their energy back into the earth we will dig deeper into our connection with the plants. Digging up roots and learning about these tasty, and powerful food and medicines under our feet. We will also explore some utilitarian uses of plants that can keep us connected to through the winter ahead.

About the Forager: Sammy Tangir
Sammy has a deep rooted passion for plants, and is an all around nature-nerd. She grew up in Toronto where she first learned to admire the plants coming up between the cracks in the sidewalk, and soon was learning of the great diversity of trees shading her neighbourhood and beyond!
Sammy has spent the past 6 years attending Wild Foragers Society frolics (and now leading them), learning from inspiring mentors alongside her own personal drive and passion to be curious about plants and explore deeply. Sammy loves connecting with wild plants through food (Milkweed Pods please!) and crafting using natural materials. Get a taste of her nature adventures on Instagram @sammtangir

A way of life…
Nature is our gateway to farming. Having both lived near a forest that we visited often, plants are strongly apart of our journey that so strongly weaves our web of wisdom. Continuous studies through our 5-senses, various readings, gatherings and mentorships have created our foundation for plant knowledge. With this knowledge we offer small-batch items at our farmers markets, pop-up sales or our CSA program. Plants carry an abundance of health and medicine. We recognize their power to heal, empower and transform when harvested safely and used properly.
We very much believe that being outside and working with plants gives us a deep nature connection and reminds us of where we come from. Growing, eating and sharing our produce is a part of our daily lives and brings us a sense of gratitude and purpose. Mankind’s ability to observe the interactions in nature and having the ability to interact allows us to enhance carrying capacity of the land, increase the biodiversity and therefore help the world to thrive and responsibly support our existence.
All over the planet people are making a solid effort in order to bring back the ecology to their land by participating in reforestation projects. Regenerating our landscapes back to thriving environments is something we should consider a priority in order to heal the earth from the destructive nature of conventional agriculture. We have the ability to bring this into existence and with our new found ability to design landscapes using what we observe and what we know about soil, a positive co existence is possible.
These are the people who inspire us!
