UTS Library is hosting a FREE workshop - Edible Weeds Walk and Talk with Diego Bonetto - as part of our Green Week 2017 events program. 

1:00 - 3:00 PM
Friday 26th May
Meet outside the UTS Library 

Register to attend

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. 

If the weather is wet, we're still on - we'll just be hosting the talk indoors instead.
