Pruning Nature

About the Program

The world we live in has enough to sustain us, but how do we use these environmental resources while encouraging preservation and regrowth? Mohawk chef Tamara Green of Indigenesis walks us through responsible foraging practices with two cooking videos entitled, “Pruning Nature.” For the Ontario Culture Days festival, she will host a guided walk with forager Bryan Dowkes. Participants will also be able to sample pre-made food made by Tamara using foraged ingredients at the program.

These programs would not be possible without the support of the Government of Canada, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Province of Ontario, the Ontario Arts Council, the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund and the Toronto Arts Council.

The Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund is a program of the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, administered by the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund Corporation.
