Highbush Cranberry
Learning Workshop
Suggested donation of $20 per person


Outdoor community-based workshop to learn to identify, harvest, and make a delicious 'well-ness' syrup with highbush cranberry (Viburum trilobum). Highbush cranberry is high in vitamin C and is a known anti-oxidant. It is also known as 'cramp bark'. Highbush cranberry syrup is an easy-to-make way to capture the many benefits of this native-to-Nova Scotia plant.

Together with Jenece Gerber Ruth is the co-founder of Fireweed Earth Arts, an Earth-inspired arts and education centre established in 2018 on 50 acres of recovering/regenerating forest and farm land on the western coast of Cape Breton Island. Here she has further honed her skills of artistically and mindfully engaging with the plant and animal worlds and inspiring communities to joyfully co-create with the land. Fireweed Earth Arts hosts ecological arts apprenticeships, artist-in-residencies, workshops, coaching/teaching, performances, and other events.
