Event description

Description

We first met the ever charistmatic Diego on a wild mushroom foraging workshop we did earlier in the year and we just knew we would had to bring him up to the Northside for a workshop. Diego is a wealth of knowledge and knows his wild weeds and has an entertaining way of making the workshop fun and interactive. See you all there!

Course Outline

Naturalist Diego Bonetto will introduce you to the wonders and possibilities of edible weeds on a 2-hour natural tour. To some plantain, dandelion, chickweed and sow-thistle are a nuisance, to others they are a delicious salad and a seasonal treat. Learn about the most common species growing in your garden, along the green belts and in parks and reserves. Find out how they have been used for food, craft and natural remedies. Discover ways to safely harvest the urban 'wild' and enrich your diet with vitamins and minerals.

Company Profile
Under the banner of Wild Stories Diego has been working with council and institutions to provide content for community engagement projects.

Diego is now collaborating with a cluster of programmers and web producers to create Wild Food Map. This is a Google mapping overlay facilitating a community-driven wild food and medicine plant identification while locating it. We’ve set out to provide a platform to flag sources of free food and medicine plants (native or not) living in the landscape sharing locations and related knowledge through social media interaction.

The project has received a substantial amount of media including a Gardening Australia appearance, articles on Marie Claire, GQ Australia, SMH, and segments on ABC and SBS.

Bring
