Wild about edibles? Help plant an edible forest!

By The Review, September 24, 2018

The Raisin Region Conservation Authority needs your help to plant 200 potted trees and shrubs to expand the edible forest. The event takes place on Saturday, September 29, from 9 am to 12 noon at Gray’s Creek Conservation Area.

The objective is to provide the local community with access to wild tree and shrub edibles as well as learn about the health benefits of wild foods. This is a family-friendly free event, supported by a $4,000 grant from Tree Canada’s Edible Trees Program.

“We want to make wild edibles more accessible to people. They are all around us, extremely nutritious, fresh and free!” says Normand Genier, RRCA’s Forestry Specialist.
