CRCA Winter Foraging Workshop

January 27, 2019 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Just because the landscape is blanketed with snow and there is a bitter chill in the air doesn’t mean there aren’t forage foods available for those who know where to look.

Join noted local foraging expert Barbara Roch for a winter foraging workshop and learn about plants, mushrooms and trees – a bounty is hidden in the winter landscape for us to search and be rewarded. At the end of the workshop take home a tea bag that we will prepare. If weather permits, participants may go outside for a short identification walk.

Mallorytown Talks -Discovering Winter Vaults (“Dead Houses”)

January 27, 2019 - 2:00pm

Join Stephen Heaton,for an intriguing look into how people dealt with a very real challenge in days gone by!

Winter vaults, commonly known as "dead houses ", were used to store the bodies of those who died over the winter months. Nearly all the vaults to be discussed by Stephen Heaton are within a 60 km. radius of Mallorytown so you will all be able to go "dead house" hunting after the talk!
