Feasting for Change Plant Knowledge Cards

2013 May 09 by Fiona Devereaux

Creation of a set of 66 different native plants local to the South Island area.  The Feasting for Change Plant Knowledge Cards were inspired by our many plant walks and discussions about edible and medicinal plants.

Bring them out on walks to help identify plants, their uses and keep the old ways strong. Much of the plants and knowledge within these cards is focused on the Coast Salish Territory, but is generally applicable to wherever these plants are found. As such, many of these plants have more uses and more stories attached to them. Please use these cards  as an inspiration to talk to an Elder or Knowledge Keeper. An additional note, not all of these plants are from pre-Contact eras. The plants are ones that are used currently by many people. Contact Jen McMullen for more information mcmullen.j@gmail.com
