Spring Wild Foods Dinner – First Harvest

Sat­ur­day March 22 (5 pm — 9 pm)

Landing shortly after the spring equinox, this dinner signals the start of spring and heralds the point on our calendar when daylight balances darkness. This was an important time in the ancient worlds and is often spoken of as a time of rebirth. We celebrate the spring with a menu based on local wild foods mixed in with a few First Nations-inspired  treats from around the continent. Come help us bring in the spring and balance the darkness and light.
