Edible Plant Walks

Inner City Edible Plant Walks

These edible plant walks are geared to introduce you to the safe identification of edible, wild plants and introduced species.

Walks take place in the City of Calgary’s Wildland parks, as they are semi-wild landscapes where many native species are protected from development.

On these walks you will learn:

  • Safe identification of at least 4 native plants
  • To identify a strong plant population and how to know if the plant is healthy
  • Parts of the plant that are 'in season'
  • The role the plant plays in nature and the habitat they grow in.

Regain your wild spirit. Give yourself the gift of deeper knowledge, about our local wild places.

Price per person $35     Time: 2 hrs

Early Season Identification - Learning about habitat

Leafy Teas of the Foothills - The best plant leaves for tea


Edible Flowers of the Prairies - Tasty florals, tips on petal selection and recipes

Early summer berries - Fruits of flowers, shrubs and trees


Late Summer berries - Fruits of shrubs, flowers and trees

Edible Seasonal Favorites - Each park's unique flowers, berries and plants


"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

    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.

    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*
