Naturalist Diego Bonetto will introduce you to the wonders and possibilities of edible weeds on a two-hour urban tour. To some, plants like plantain, dandelion, chickweed and sow-thistle are a nuisance - to others, they are a delicious salad and seasonal treat. 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 the urban 'wild' and enrich your diet with vitamins and minerals.
