Wednesday, December 6, 7:00 pm Schnitzels European Flavors Pitt Street Edible Forests – Planting a Sustainable Community –  The River Institute through its popular Science and Nature on Tap series is inviting RRCA’s Forestry Specialist, Normand Genier to chronicle this special “Edible Forest” project. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn about this unique project. It is something that our Mohawk neighbours and ancestors were well aware of back in the day but many of us have now forgotten. Many wild trees and shrubs found in nature are a nutritional source of food and produce fruit or nuts that are edible. Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) is now sharing this legacy knowledge and literally inviting us all to re-discover our roots. Over the past couple of years RRCA has worked side by side with dozens of local volunteers and community groups to create the area’s first edible garden by planting several hundred trees and bushes at Gray’s Creek Conservation Area.  Science and Nature on Tap Sessions are free of charge and held at Schnitzels European Flavours but space is limited. If you would like more information or to reserve a seat please call (613) 936-6620 (ext. 229) or e-mail Coordinator Karen Cooper at kcooper@riverinstitute.ca or visit http://www.riverinstitute.ca.
