Join us for the first workshop in the Community Art Plant series. This series will provide participants with the opportunity to learn about local plants, and how to document them in various ways, through a series of three, free, virtual workshops.

In this first workshop, learn how to identify common plants in your neighbourhood (including native, edible, toxic, and invasive plants). We also cover how to safely collect plants for documentation or craft purposes. This workshop will be presented by Tasha Murray, ISCMV Executive Director.
