The Wonderful World of Weeds: history, ecology and recipes

international Permaculture Day Special: Wild Edibles Workshop.

Join us for a weed foraging walk with Diego Bonetto taking place in Darvall Park, Denistone. Diego is a well-known and respected cultural practitioner, environmental educator and speaker on useful plants, green skills, gardening, food, and the environment.

Weeds are everywhere, unavoidably. Weeds are our co-evolutionary species, many of them following human’s footsteps as we expanded from North East Africa and roamed the world. These plants are our botanical brothers and sisters, some are the ancestors of nowadays domesticated food sources, while others have always been harvested from the wild, used for food, remedies and craft purposes in folk lore from all over the globe. Let’s meet the weeds, our bane and medicine. Let’s recognise the value of some of these species by revisiting stories, recipes and... your very own backyard.

“There is no waste, only under-utilised resources”

International Permaculture Day on the first Sunday in May (or thereabouts) is a day of celebration and action for permaculture around the world. It is a day when visitors can see these myriad initiatives, ask questions of their developers and decide for themselves whether the permaculture design system has relevance to the challenges we face and to creating communities that are resilient in the face of undesirable and unforeseeable impacts.

Now in its 10th year, International Permaculture Day has grown rapidly from its roots as a local Australian initiative to a global day of permaculture celebrated in over 35 countries.

Meet at MossHouse, an award winning permaculture garden in Deniston, Sydney, twice featured in Gardening Australia.
