Camas bulbs taste like camas, but do Chocolate Lily bulbs taste like chocolate? Attend the Coast Salish Pit Cook on October 13th and find out!
This is a unique hands-on opportunity to participate in a traditional method of food preparation used by Coast Salish people. The process will start in the early morning, and as the food slowly cooks there will be singing, drumming and the sharing of stories and traditional knowledge. On the menu to sample at 2:00 pm is camas harvested from our Conservation Nursery and other root vegetables.
With teachings from Elders, as well as Cheryl Brice from Songhees Nation, community members, and Parks Canada.
