Event description

Description

Most common weeds in our lawns, gardens, verges and parks originally came to Australia as legitimate food plants from other cultures and countries, and many of them offer amazing nutritional and medicinal qualities.

In this workshop with Green Dean, we'll explore the benefits and features of our most common weeds and forage around the B4C Sustainability Centre to find and taste some (if you choose). You'll be shown how to ID edible and useful weeds.

Workshop funded by the Brisbane City Council 'Cultivating Community Gardens' grant.

Light refreshments served.
