And here's a list of some of the wonders growing out there, and probably in your garden too.

Diego believes that the best food is not found in the supermarket but all around us, and he's teaching inner-city dwellers how to forage.

I have made an observation about what I have learned from you. By introducing the dimension of the different tastes of the different plants into my experience I’m am relating to my environment in a totally different and much richer way.  When I walk into my backyard I no longer see different shaped green things, I am distinguishing between plants by look and taste.

Thank you for giving me those eyes.

Thank you so very much Diego!  It was such a pleasure to meet you and I really enjoyed the workshop.  I loved it so much I am going to tell lots of people about it.  Very informative and very fun!
Thanks for sharing these resources and thanks for opening my eyes to the world of weeds :)

Hello Diego,
I just wanted to thank you for the great workshop on Saturday, I really enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to pursuing this more. It is certainly astonishing to think how ignorant most of us are of all of this opportunity around us.... I’m constantly looking at my feet now to see if I can spot any edible weeds!
Thank you for making it a fun morning.

Best wishes,
