Plant Walk | Dallas Rd Edibles & Medicinals
Join herbalist Harmony Pillon on a summer plant walk at Dallas Road, where we will be exploring a favourite city beach spot from a plant perspective. Here we will be meeting and getting to know some of the plant allies that can be found growing in unexpected places. We will be meeting at the Dallas waterfront trail (exact meeting spot will be emailed to participants). Please bring clothing for the variable coastal weather, wear sun protection & bring sturdy footwear. Remember to bring a notebook or sketchbook & pen for taking notes or sketching.

Vancouver island is vast and diverse in plant life, medicines are all around, even and often especially so in urban areas. There is a rich number of plants that have adapted to living and often thriving in some challenging and unexpected places. In this walk Harmony will introduce you to a wide variety of medicinal plants that can be found growing between the cracks, on the cliffside or even directly in the asphalt.
You will be given tips on how to identify both native and naturalized plants and as well as learn the some of the medicinal properties of botanicals that often frequent the places we walk, run or play in our day to day lives.
