Past Event: Walk with Lori Snyder

Lori Snyder is an indigenous and contemporary First Nations Metis Herbalist. She loves to teach people about the wonders of what is growing under their feet. Lori shares natural ways to make skincare products, sunscreen, infused honeys, green drinks, vinegar mineral tonics and more.

We discovered wonders of plants and learned how to identify edibles and how you would incorporate wild foods into your diet and lifestyle.

During our walk, we came across many plants that can be used to heal. Many people think of them as weeds, but there are actually many health benefits from these plants.

Plantain is very high in vitamins A and C and in calcium. Plantian leaves can be made into tea to consume and relieve bladder problems and to aid with Bladder infection. External use of plantain leaves is also good for the skin to sooth insect bites, bee stings, burns, rashes, and eczema.

Chickweed leaves are used by adding them raw to salads and sandwiches. They can be tossed into soups and stews as well. When adding to a cooked dish, the stems and flowers can be used also.

Dandelion is a great source of many vitamins and minerals as well as antioxidants. The leaves can be eaten raw and can be used in salads. Let dandelions grow. Remember that bees, beetles and birds need them.
