You will never look at weeds in the same way again after taking part in this workshop.
Join wild food expert Diego Bonetto on a two hours stroll in the park and learn about the most common edible and medicinal plants that surround us all.

Diego is an edible weeds advocate based in Sydney, most famous for his offering of urban foraging workshops. Building on the knowledge acquired while growing up on a farm in Italy, Diego introduces people to the ever-present food and medicine plants that surround us.
Discover the abundance of native and non native edibles to be found underfoot. Learn local stories of plant resilience woven with cultural trivia, migrant perspectives and native wisdom. Discuss the role weeds play in repairing and building soil. Find out how they have been used for food, craft and natural remedies. Most importantly, you will discover ways to safely harvest from the urban wild and enrich your diet with vitamins and minerals.
