Join this free seminar and learn which about edible weeds!

Eat your Weeds! – Which Weeds are Free Food?

This workshop will discuss uses for weeds and what weeds are telling us about our garden, and then will venture into the fun of edible weeds. So many of the weeds we hate so much are actually edible, highly nutritious and so easy to grow. Some are even yummy!

Weeds offer us free food, and can help bring us so much health through their many medicinal values. Even better, this workshop will focus specifically on weeds which are commonly found in Brisbane gardens. Examples of edible weeds will be passed around for purposes of recognition and tasting.
