Discover the world of wild edible Weeds!

Saturday 17th March at 1.00pm

Weeds have been used medicinally and as food for centuries by many cultures all around the world.

We all have them and can benefit from them, so come along and learn about 'what is a weed', the various categories from delicious and highly nutritious to questionably edible, their often querky benefits, and what tasty and interesting delights can be found as weeds in your own backyard.

You may actually be surprised by what is classed as a weed and what is not.

Presented by Doris PozziDoris grew up in an Italian family in Melbourne where her early exposure to foraging began. Completing permaculture studies in 2009, she then compiled her knowledge of edible weeds into her book 'Edible Weeds and Garden Plants of Melbourne'. Doris has spent the last eight years teaching sustainable living and foraging, and now retired, immerses herself in her beloved property Samara Forest Garden in Healesville.
