Ethical foraging Workshops

Build on your Plant knowledge through Ecological, ETHICAL and safe FORAGING techniques.

Explore what it means to be part of nature. Humans have evolved over time, through our relationship with the land. All peoples developed ethical foraging practices.

Learn to create  your own plant blessing and ask permission from a plant, to harvest from that community. Experience what a strong plant community looks like. Learn the many small tests and tips you can use to safely forage.

Take home a new plant to work with on each forage outing!

"In February 2019 I saw Julie Walker present at the 'Living in the Natural Environment' Event. Her presentation on 'The Wild Foods of the Forest Floor' was incredibly informative yet approachable. Her passion for wild edible plants is evident and I thoroughly enjoyed her presentation. I was inspired to plant my very own native food garden, which is progressing nicely!"

"Thank you for the excellent course. It was a great way to learn more about the mountain habitat.”

“Thanks, I really enjoyed my hike with full circle adventures.  I think your guiding style is cool, a little of this and that and even a song, a poem and impressions of wildlife!"


“Hiking with Julie has awakened my senses, she has taught me to listen to Wildlife, hear running water, and learn about the birds around us. That heightened awareness brings so much pleasure to hiking on the trail.”

“Powderface Ridge was a magical day!”
