Metis Herbs of Alberta – Traditional Food & Medicine

*Family-friendly* View the landscapes of Calgary’s parks from a new perspective! Right here in our own city, and we will find an abundance of plants to enjoy as food, medicine, shelter and tools. Some of these ‘weeds’ were brought from Europe by the Settlers, while others have lived here for thousands of years. Meeting these plants and learning about their usefulness is a fun way to gain a healthy new respect for the local ecosystems (indigenous and introduced) that make up the plant-world of Calgary.
