The virtual seminar is part of the Shuswap Climate Action Society’s Lose the Lawn series.

Cannon is a mother, farmer, author and instructor who facilitates classes and workshops focused on responsible foraging and wildcrafting. She is an experienced wilderness guide with a passion for plants and their uses stemming from her educational background of courses in herbal medicine, ethnobotany, anthropology and biology.

“Mikaela will inspire you to look at the so-called ‘weeds’ in your lawn in a whole different light, bringing her extensive knowledge to your backyard rewilding project,” the society said.

And one registrant will win a copy of Cannon’s newly released book Foraging as a Way of Life: A Year-Round Field Guide to Wild Plants. The Enderby Library hosts Cannon April 12, 6 p.m. for the Local Authors’ Night and the Allan Brooks Nature Centre is also hosting a book lauch party for Cannon’s lates on April 20,

The seminar follows three previous Lose the Lawn sessions with gardening experts aimed at helping you rewild your yard.
