Herb walks build deep connections with our environment and the plant and animal people who live there. This is not your regular walk-in-the-park: You will learn to identify flowers, herbs, and trees that are appreciated not only for their beauty, but as valuable and precious sources of life for all of the interconnected species.
Love them for their shade, spirit, healing, food, tool-making and medicine uses. Hear stories told by the plant people.
Each walk is a new opportunity to see more of Calgary’s diverse ecosystems. We will cover the prairie highlands, riverlands, woodlands and cultivated parks to see a variety of food/medicine plants.
Fun for families, adults, kids, singles, and friendly pets – everyone is welcome. A relaxed stroll is our usual pace, because there’s just so much to see!
$15 for adults, $5 for kids

Get back to the very beginnings of Flower Essences in this special 1-day class! In ceremony in the great outdoors, we will connect with the flowers in the fullness of their bloom, learning intuitively how to accept and use the gift of their energies for growth and healing. Personal experiences with the flowers will be shared and compared, to form a compendium of knowledge from our local flower spirits!
If the sun shines, we will create a special essence with the Sunshine Method for you to take home, so you can continue learning from the energies of the flowers.
