Edible Weeds Walk (now online!)
Date(s) - 29 May
10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Merri Creek (exact location TBC)
Lockdown note, 27 May: this is still going ahead but in an online format which has it’s advantages! We’ll use video and photos from throughout the year so we see weeds at all times of their life. It’s still heaps of fun.
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), $35 household. Free for frontline workers.
Secret location on the Merri Creek, Brunswick East or Coburg – exact location will be emailed to you in the week before the course. Online via Zoom.
