Join us for an evening dedicated to the weird but wonderful foods grown and foraged in the Gatineau Hills, from wild-sourced sumac juice and tree sap to forest-grown shiitake mushrooms!
Geneviève LeGal-Leblanc of Ferme et Forêt will guide you through an evening of tasting, smelling, and discovering some unusual wild and cultivated foods from her farm. Ferme et Forêt also produces maple syrup, eggs, berries, and more. You will discover how these products are interconnected and contribute to sustainable farming.
Geneviève LeGal-Leblanc is co-owner of Ferme et Forêt
, an ecological farm and wild foods enterprise near Wakefield, Quebec. She's a wild forager, maple syrup producer, beekeeper, and farmer of a wide variety of foods. An advocate for sustainable wild harvesting and farming, LeGal-Leblanc likes to share her wild foraging skills through hands-on field- and forest-based workshops.
