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!!

Foraging with Diego is an enriching experience. My local walk has been transformed to a ‘close up’ engagement with the plant life. Every leaf has now become a name and a taste with a seasonal variation. I come back from my walks with culinary treasures.

Wow I am still reeling in the feeling of Saturday’s walk, Diego is an excellent teacher, engager and entertainer.
I walked along the Cooks river yesterday evening and spotted many of the ‘weeds’ we got to know the day before abundantly growing and winking “I’m good to eat, I can change your world” at me.
Thank you all so much for the opportunity and I loved meeting so many great locals, what a cool community we have!
