Upcoming workshops...

We currently have several workshops coming up in Montreal for the Summer months. Please see our facebook page for more information.

 This tour is open to the complete herbal newcomer or those with existing green thumbs - We work with all knowledge levels. First we will start in a nearby park, introduce ourselves and share our first cup of herbal tea (grown at our soon to be certified organic farm.) In the park we will learn some of the processes to aid plant identification and the more common plants and trees growing around us. After the park we will begin to explore the back streets of Montreal, searching for those plants we have just learned about and learning about their history, cultural context and medicinal or culinary uses. We will finish with a second tea tasting, a summation of what we've learnt and the knowledge of some new plant allies that we can find growing all around us.  No registration necessary,  facebook event here  suggested donation $15

 It's time to harvest the wild! In this hands-on (and very tasty) workshop, we will be learning how to make 3 different recipes using local to Quebec wild foods. They are the following:  1) A Wild Greens Pesto: Great for storing in the fridge for Winter and adding a taste of the wild to dishes.  2) A Herbal Salt: Makes an amazing and nutritional all round seasoning. Useful for salads, steaks and more!  3) A Wild Mushroom Soup Broth: A nourishing and immune boosting great for soups.  Participants expect to get involved. We will be working from beginning to end preparing these dishes (with tasters to share.) Recipes available to take home. All dishes are prepared without using animal products.  $15 Suggested donation, no registration necessary.

 Has your zombie neighbor just eaten your dog? Did a party member just get bit? Are you looking at a long Winter ahead whilst civilization collapses around you? Inspired by authors such as Max Brooks, this workshop will contain could contain just the right thing to help you out!  In this workshop we will focus on three areas where plants can help us survive on our own against the flesh eating masses:  - Herbal First Aid: Focusing on wound healing (no guarantees to prevent a zombie virus however)  - Wild Food Sources: Learn about some wild and nutritious plants to help feed yourself  - Plants for Outdoor Survival: Need to build a shelter and start a fire? This section is for you!  Whilst the subject of this workshop is one of fantasy (and a little humor) we will be using real life examples of herbal medicine and other survival skills that will be able to help you out in the wild, regardless of whether zombies are out to eat you or not.  Suggested donation $10. Trades, gifts and bartering is encouraged!  At the end of the workshop, an informal discussion will be animated relating to zombie culture and the appeal to those of us dis-enfranchised with our current society.  La Boite A Pois is a small intentional community focused on the transmission of knowledge located 2 minutes from Berri-Uqam station.  Stay safe and keep an eye on your neighbor!
