About the event
You will never look at weeds in the same way again after taking part in this workshop. Diego Bonetto is a weed forager, artist, storyteller and an expert on identifying the nutritious plants that grow under our feet that most people call ‘weeds’.
Take a walk on the wild side and discover the edible and medicinal plants that grow around us. Learn about the role weeds play in repairing and building soil. Find out how they have been used for food, craft and natural remedies. Discover ways to safely harvest from the wild and enrich your diet with vitamins and minerals.
Each participant will receive a booklet detailing 16 of the most common wild edibles of the greater Sydney region.
