Our Berry Own
 

Salmonberry and cloudberry. Highbush cranberry and Saskatoon berry. These are just a few of the edible berries native to coastal BC.

Fiona Hamersley Chambers, author of Wild Berries of BC and owner of Metchosin Farm, will be talking at Seedy Saturday about which of our native berries you can (and would want to) eat, how to identify them, and how to grow them at home.

Whether you want to add more native plants to your garden, start a food forest, make your land more wildlife friendly, or grow tasty treats for yourself, native berries have something to offer. You might say that they are berry useful plants indeed.

Fiona Hamersley Chambers, Wild and Wonderful: growing native berries in your backyard, February 16, 12:45 at the Victoria Conference Centre, 720 Douglas Street, is included in your admission to Victoria’s Seedy Saturday on a first-come-first-get-the-seats basis. Seedy Saturday runs from 10 to 4, admission $7, free for the under-12s.
