    Julie,

    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.

    Thank you Janice. Sorry for my tardy response. We have been busy in the field all this month! I believe we talked about your interest. Please remind me, did we talk about you wanting to forage? Thank you Janice. It is easiest to reach me at info@full-circle-adventures.com

    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*
