This is the first talk in our speaker series... Peggi Calder has been giving Wild Edible presentations since the 1980's in places such as Coopers Marsh, Upper Migratory Bird Sanctuary, Apple Hill Forestry Interpretation Centre, as well as numerous other locations. She has also exhibited at the CBC gardening fair, Plowing Matches, and Forestry Week. Peggi Calder is certified by the Ministry of Natural Resources as a Project Wild, Focus on Forests, and Fish Ways Leader.
Peggi Calder, self taught, has years of expirience with most aspects of wildlife, having started this process growing up in Northern Ontario with parents who hunted and fished, and knew what to do in the kitchen with what they caught.
This particular presentation will focus on the common and not-so-common plants that grow in backyard's, fields, and fence rows, that can be used to freshen up a meal. It covers greens, fruits, and a couple of very safe and easy-to-identify mushrooms
This event will take place on July 7 at 2 PM Admission $4
