Trials and Tribulations of Cooking with Native Plants
with Kristen Miskelly & Paige Erickson-McGee

Kristen and Paige will bring their shared passion for native plants, delicious food, and enjoying it all with friends. From berries to clover rhizomes to seeds, they will share their successes (and flops) of collecting, growing, preparing, preserving, and eating native plant foods. They may even bring some delicious samples along to share.

Kristen Miskelly, MSc is a biologist passionate about the conservation of local ecosystems, native plants, and restoration. She is the owner of Saanich Native Plants, a certified organic plant nursery specializing in native plants and seeds of southern Vancouver Island. Paige Erickson-McGee, BSc is the Stewardship Coordinator at Habitat Acquisition Trust and loves native plants almost as much as she loves eating.
