Edible Weeds Walk
Date(s) - 22 Aug
10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Merri Creek (exact location TBC)
At the time of booking these workshops in, in June, it’s beginning to look likely that by late August it will be safe to gather outdoors for events like this (and it’s already legal to do so). If there’s a second wave we’ll take the course online and you’ll have the opportunity for a refund. Thanks and be safe!
What if many of the weeds in our garden were just as edible as the vegetables we tend beside them?
What if some of these these free, all-too-easy-to-grow uninvited guests were so nutritionally dense that they are just about the healthiest things you could possibly eat?
What if many of them also had medical traditions dating back centuries?
Well it’s all true! And if you know what to choose, they also taste great. A gastronomic adventure awaits the knowledgeable forager, and a free living pharmacy…
Join Adam Grubb co-author of the full colour field guide The Weed Forager’s Handbook, for a fascinating walk on the wild side. Copies of the book will be available for the special price of only $20, with identification, edibility, medicinal notes and intriguing historical and folkloric stories about the weeds.
Course price: $25 ($20 concession) and a 10% discount for groups of three or more
Location: Secret location on the Merri Creek, Brunswick East – exact location will be emailed to you in the week before the course.

Kids note: Yes, kids can come; but read the conditions.
Weather note: We’ve almost never had to do this, but we will cancel and refund you if extreme weather is forecast. In case you’re interested, the cutoffs for what we call extreme are here.
