Edible Wild Berries: Iconic Canadian Food Edible Wild Berries: Iconic Canadian Food

The fragrance of woodland strawberries, the tangy taste of chokecherry jelly, and the deep rich colour of blueberry pie – for many Canadians, picking and eating wild berries is a cherished memory and much-anticipated activity. For thousands of years, these fruits have also been a key component of Indigenous peoples’ food systems, providing important nutrients and flavours, and contributing to local economies and culture.

Nancy Turner, ethnobotanist, ethnoecologist and Professor Emeritus in the School of Environmental Studies, University of Victoria, BC., will present some of the most interesting wild berry species, describing their cultural significance, traditional harvesting and processing techniques, and population threats. She will also demonstrate how many wild berry species are easily propagated, and grow particularly well in garden settings where they provide beauty, interest and food.

This lecture is cohosted by the North American Native Plant Society.
