Lets celebrate spring with a walk in the park!

This is the time of the year with the most amazing variety of wild edibles out there.
Meet your botanical neighbours, the pesky weeds that grow everywhere and that speak of weather patterns like no other.
Tough, resilient and ubiquitous, the medicinal and edible plants that grow even if you do not want them to are everywhere.
What to do? Learn how to use them!

Typical of this time of the year there will be mallow, peppercress, dandelion, flatweed, farmers friend, sowthistle, rambling dock, wild sorrel, wild fennel and many more.

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 from the urban 'wild' and enrich your diet with vitamins and minerals. This is a family and pet friendly stroll in the park, dress for the weather bring camera and notebook if you wish to retain the information.

Diego Bonetto. One of the good humans. He champions wild “weeds”, taking workshop tours and working with chefs. I just spent a really enjoyable morning learning about and tasting plants along the Cooks River in Tempe. If you are looking for an informative, fascinating and often hilarious thing to do, please sign up to do a workshop!! You don’t have to find someone to do it with - go by yourself - you’ll be in a companionable and interesting group. Highly recommended!!
