Who: Camille Flanjak (this series' wildcrafter) is the wild foods consultant for the Acorn Restaurant and supplier to many more. She studies permaculture and wine and is under mentorship with Don Elzer of the Wild Forest Tea Company. Cam has a degree in Critical Theory and Critical Studies in Sexuality from UBC and is certified in First Aid, clowning, and WSET level 2. She also conducts workshops in ASL. To learn more about her, check out her blog, meelsmeals.blogspot.ca. This season we'll also be linking up with some herbalists and other foragers and mycologists to enrich the workshops.
What: Hands-on, all-day wildcrafting and forest stewardship workshops that happen rain or shine.*
Where: Meet ups and drop offs are in East Van in the Safeway parking lot at Broadway Station.
When: Meet at 9:30 AM to carpool to our spots (driving time may be up to 90 mins). Potluck-style lunch around 1:30 with snacks in between. We aim to arrive back in East Van by 6pm.**
Cost: $30-60 sliding scale. In order to break even with materials and transportation, the minimum cost per person per Sunday is $30. If cost is an issue for you but you are really keen, email Camille at email@example.com. Nobody will be turned away due to lack of funds.
Registration is only complete upon payment: this is to ensure that we can fill each of the 8 seats available per workshop with committed people. For this reason we also cannot offer refunds. If you're registered and not able to attend, please contact us as soon as you know and we will try and fill your seat with folks on the waitlist and get you booked for another date.
Every workshop you'll be going home with wild knowledge, medicine, and/or food. Some days we'll provide a little knife and booklet, others we'll make tinctures on-site. There's always a surprise goodie or two that Mama Gaia throws in.
*Please come appropriately dressed- gumboots and parkas are encouraged on rainy days, and sunscreen is important on sunny days.
**If you aren't able to bring anything to share for the potluck don't worry. Also, we welcome all kinds of food so if you have any allergies please share this information with facilitators ahead of time.
***IF THERE IS A WAIT LIST for the workshop you'd like to join: In this day and age people do cancel, so the admin at ME will contact you if a space comes available and we promise to be honest and forthright if the list is excessively long or if we think you have a good shot of getting in.
