About the Food Map
This map was designed by our Board Chair Lindsay Worden. This Food Foraging Map is designed for use by the community of Victoria. It is a digital, public, and shareable map on Google Maps with locations and information on forage-able sources.
I created it to document and indicate locations of harvestables, instruction on how to harvest and quantity, and typical/local uses of these plants in public places on campus on Lekwungen Territory. I believe food security, sovereignty, and education are critical especially during a pandemic. This foraging map is designed to introduce folks to foraging with easy-to-identify edibles in our community. I want to connect and empower people with fresh, local, and free food in their community. This will also include facts about the species, and Indigenous/local perspectives and uses (where appropriate)." - Lindsay Worden
This map has very simple and introductory information about forage-ables and should be used in tandem with additional research and guidance from the community. Use this map to engage in your own food autonomy and shorten the length of your food system.
