Wild Plants as Food, Medicine, and Soil Indicators

This event has passed.

Plants commonly referred to as weeds have many beneficial uses. Learn what they are telling us about the health of the soil. Learn how to harvest and process them for food and medicine, as well as tips on how to discourage the weeds you don’t want in your garden and how to encourage those you do. This class will start with a slideshow in the classroom and then venture out to a local garden for hands-on learning and to sample edible weeds provided by the instructor. Taught by Drew Harwell who is an edible-garden and Permaculture consultant, the manager of Jesse Cool’s Seeds of Change Garden, and the former Common Ground Garden Manager.
