Urban Foraging + Learning to Identify Wild Vegetables

We often get lost in the packaging in our ever-growing world full of preservatives. But where does the food really come from? In the summer months, many of us garden and grow vegetables in our backyards.

What is foraging? Foraging is the act of finding and gathering or harvesting wild foods.

“Wild” is a relative term – we can find foods just about anywhere: in parks, backyards, front yards, farmlands, pastures, woods, mountainsides.

We came from a long line of foragers.

“least one conclusion remains unchanged: we have come from a long lineage of opportunistic foragers, and for millions of years both the natural diet and the foraging strategies of hominids resembled those of their primate ancestors”

“Diminishing returns in gathering and hunting led to a gradual extension of incipient cultivation present in many foraging societies, and foraging and agriculture commonly coexisted for very long periods of time”

In this foraging workshop, we will cover: where to begin, dos & don’ts and ‘try this’ (what’s in the GTA, wild & edible)

This urban foraging workshop is part of the Library of Things We Can Learn from Each Other, a participatory project that welcomes into circulation skills and knowledge from community members on a broad range of topics, from the everyday and instructional to abstract and conceptual. Embracing non-expert and experience based knowledge, practical, theoretical or intuitive understandings, the library reflects the interests of the people who contribute to it and celebrates the unique assets each person brings to the community.
