Wonderful Wild Weeds

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

7 Jul 2019 to 3 Nov 2019

Renowned forager Diego Bonetto will introduce you to the wonders and possibilities of edible weeds on a three-hour walking workshop in Centennial Park. To some plantain, dandelion, chickweed and sow-thistle are a nuisance, to others they are a delicious salad and a seasonal treat. Learn about the most common species growing in your garden, the green belts, 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.

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 you.

He collaborates extensively with chefs, herbalists, environmentalists and cultural workers promoting a new understanding of what the environment has to offer.

This is a family and pet-friendly stroll in the park, bring your camera and notebook, dress for the weather.
