The Fort Whyte forager

I was delighted to see a good friend of mine, Barret Miller, featured in this weekend’s Winnipeg Free Press. A fellow foodie and nature lover, Barret has spent the last couple years working as a special programs interpreter at FortWhyte Alive, an absolutely amazing environmental education centre right here in city limits. (It’s also home to the Buffalo Stone Cafe, voted Best Restaurant of the Year by Ciao Magazine).

Barret and I have many rewarding conversations about beer, recipes and the great outdoors. A fount of enthusiastically related information (sometimes unbidden bless him) he’s the guy who hooked me up on the mushroom picking education afternoon with the Manitoba Naturalists Society.

Winnipeg Free Press reporter Alison Mayes wrote a fantastic feature for the Detour section. You can read the article here, but the FREEP also shot an awesome series of videos with Barret foraging for wild edibles and turning them into some bush tea. Check it out:
