Time: 2:00pm – 4:00pm

Location: Murray’s Garden Centre

Join us on Sundays throughout August for our new Farm & Forage sessions with our guest forager, Shawn Dawson of Barking Kettle. We will leave from the Garden Centre and walk through the surrounding organic farm and boreal forest to discover what both the forest and the farm have to offer. You’ll learn about organic farming techniques and discover the bounty of wild edibles that exist within our natural areas. Then we’ll return to the Grounds Cafe to learn how to cook with wild edibles and try samples of the prepared foods.

Cost: $25 per person (small sampling menu included) 

Pre-registration is requested either online or by phone at (709)895-2800.
