Feedback from previous participants:
I would definitely recommend this to anyone and everyone, Tina has so much knowledge and experience in this area. Truly learned so much useful information, and left the foraging walk with so more knowledge and uses for everything around us! From young to old this is an amazing opportunity!

The community of Tors Cove is a place my husband and I love to visit and hike the trail leading to the beautiful beach. On one such visit we encountered Tina, and her husband preparing for a fire and food tasting on the beach. Tina explained the, “Wild Food Walk , Foraging & Tasting” tour, I was hooked. I signed up for her next tour and so enjoyed the day! Form beginning to the end Tina was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable of the plants we were foraging. I never imagined the number of times I walked this trail it had so much to offer. We ended our day with a wonderful boil up experience on the beach with a foraged food lunch that Tina had prepared. The taste was amazing (the ice cream was my favourite). Thanks Tina to you and your team of helpers for the beautiful people you are and the joy you give in sharing it with others. It was truly memorable, hope to do it again!

My adult kids and I embraced the chance to do the foraging walk with Tina. As indigenous people and nature lovers, we were not disappointed! Tina not only showed us a variety of edible plants, but also brought some prepared goodies for us to eat on our walk. I still crave the candied spruce tips, delicious! At the end of the walk, we had a lovely fire on the beach, with a lunchbox provided of more homemade plant goodies for lunch. It was a wonderful experience and I would definitely do it again, especially if more plants were added. I recommend this walk to anyone looking to connect with nature and a wonderful host.

I highly recommend the Foraging tour in Tors cove. It was really educational. Nice to end it on the beach by the fire with tea and treats! - Sarah Gagne
