Chef Robin Kort & Herbalist Lori Snyder
For the past 10 years, Chef Robin has been teaching foraging programs from wild mushrooms to winter foraging classes in and around her hometown Vancouver, Canada. Her experience spans from being a commercial wild foods supplier for Vancouver's high end restaurants to bringing forestry students into the field for lectures on traditional food plants of BC.
Medicinal plant instructor Lori Snyder’s lineage blends from the Tsuu T’ina, Ojibway, Nipissing, Cree and Assiniboine Nations. For the past 25 years, Lori has been teaching, studying and researching wild plant medicines, having completed intensive two year Practical Herbalist Training in 2006. Combining a First Nations perspective and European herbal traditions, Lori’s vision is to create native, edible and medicinal food forests throughout our urban landscape.
We look forward to being your guides on your foraging journey.
