An evening ode to burry acorns
Updated: Apr 22, 2020
At the end of a balmy day, about 40 people gathered in Champlain Park to hear about acorns and about the human history that surrounds and supports the bur oaks in our neighbourhood. The evening capped off a perfect National Tree Day.
With guests Tina Le Moine of Hidden Harvest Ottawa and Richard Viger of EC-SONG, young and old gathered under a bur oak in the park to learn more about how trees can provide food for people. Someone even circulated an Acorn Bread recipe that uses bur oak acorns processed into a meal.
