Plant Walk and Medicine Making Workshop with Cowichan Elder Della (Rice) Sylvester
Spend the morning with Della on a plant walk around the Food Forest as she shares her wisdom and knowledge about Native connections to plants. Bring a bag lunch to share as we relax in the Gathering Plaza between the two parts of the day. In the afternoon, Della will teach us about Medicine making from the tradition of her people with a hands-on workshop. Students will each take home their own creations that they will be making along with Della (Rice) Sylvester. This is a rare opportunity to learn from a First Nations teacher and a wonderful way to deepen our connection to the land we live on from someone who originates from the land.

Dress for the weather and bring a bag lunch as well as enough water to stay hydrated throughout the day. Bring a notebook to take notes. Please be considerate and dont wear perfume or lots of essential oils as many people are sensitive to them. Come with an open mind and heart prepared to learn from a traditional point of view.

Bio: Hyamiciate, Della (Rice) Sylvester is a traditional medicine woman from Cowichan tribes on Vancouver Island. Della has been studying the medicinal uses of plants all her life. She is retired and makes her living giving lectures, workshops and nature walks. Della has vast knowledge of Pacific Northwest plants and their medicinal and ceremonial uses. She is familiar with plant identification, the traditional stories associated with each, cultural protocols, and how to make medicine salves. A dynamic presenter, Della works with learners of all ages and engages audiences with songs, stories, prayer, humor and traditional ecological knowledge.
