Edible Plant Walks


Inner City Edible Plant Walks

The City of Calgary’s Wildland parks and Provincial parks are protected pockets of indigenous, wild plants, some even endangered. Many of these plants were used for hundreds of years by the First peoples of this land and the early European settlers. These protected areas give us easy access to native populations of local, native, edible plants.

Learn to identify 5 native plants, their uses and the habitat they grow in on these walks, to the various eco-systems. Knowing how to recognize the plants in the early and late season is often the most difficult. Once you know them, it is much easier to observe their growing season and follow the early spring, summer and fall edible species that grow in southern Alberta’s endangered landscapes.

"Thank you so much for conducting such a great nature walk around the Leighton Centre.  I can't wait to go back and paint in some of the locations we walked through, incorporating the flowers we saw." - Dorothy

    I had the pleasure of joining you for your March 26th, Sunday Edible Plant Walk. I was most impressed! You have an obvious passion for plants, speaking about them with obvious fondness and awe, and a deep respect for First Nations culture. As well, you convey information about trees, shrubs, and flowers in an engaging way. Thank you for using your time and energy on behalf of the natural world.

    Hello Jola, lovely to hear from you! My apologies for my late reply. I have been in the field much this month! I am designing programs each month this year, for a new roster that will be consistent for next and future years. So the website is slowly developing into a new look and new programs. Our next outing is June 11th and I just accidentally erased the register here button! I will get my web person to fix it! It is also on Eventbrite. Please e-mail me at info@full-circle-adventures.com and I will send you the information. Thanks again Jola May for your interest! Blessings, Julie*
