Isabel Turner Branch

Cataraqui Room

Learn how to identify herbs, greens, fruits, seeds, nuts and roots, followed by a hands-on outdoor exploration of forageable plants around the Isabel Turner Branch.

Join Sheila Nemcsok for an informative workshop on safely and ethically collecting wild food from urban nature. This workshop includes a classroom session and an outdoor lesson giving hands-on exposure to forageable plants in their natural setting.

Sheila is a Kingston-based urban forager whose pandemic passion project was to bring foraging education to her community. She grew up in Northern Ontario, where her family regularly foraged for blueberries, hazelnuts, wintergreen and other wild foods. She has a certificate in Plant-Based Medicine from Cornell University and a Master Naturalist certificate from Lakehead University.

KFPL will host eight foraging workshops between April and November 2024. Registration opens a month before each session. With short harvesting windows for forageable goods, attending multiple workshops will maximize your learning.
