Edibles Nature Walk Mill Creek Ravine brought to us by Sharedble Neighbourhood July 3rd

Last night Justin and myself went on a free nature walk through the Mill Creek Ravine, was a lot of fun and I learned about some new edible plants! I want to go back and forage for some of these when they are ready…there is even horseradish in the ravine…and gooseberries! 🙂 I would write more but I am sleepy…I am up too late already!! Here are some photos!

The lovely Janelle has been working off and on at Green Eggs & Ham and helping them out…behold…a dinner of bbq’d turkey marinated turkey over a salad of greens with a homemade poppy seed vinaigrette. Don’t that sound fancy??

(I suppose the almonds and golden berries weren’t local..but still damn good…. all greens and turkey from G,E&H

Permaculture

So I had the pleasure of attending a Permaculture event a few weeks ago and I ended up buying a Scoby from a really great guy named Rob.

My first batch….pretty freaking tasty! made some blueberry flavoured and some ginger…..I’m a bit nervous about the next batch but we’ll see how it works out…

wheeee

Let food be thy medicine

This is my grocer and he is an amazing upstanding guy….I made a decision a long time ago to not buy anything from anyone (99%) unless I trust the proprietor or farmer and this is a dude you can trust. People have a family doctor..a dentist…an accountant…yet don’t even think of ever forming a relationship with their grocer…who they deal with every week! Try him out, you won’t be disappointed, Edmonton Journal Article
