Eat Your Weeds

Food/Tasting, Class/Workshop

Many plants often considered weeds are both nutritious and delicious, and some--like purslane, which contains more omega 3 fatty acids than any other leafy vegetable--could even be considered superfoods. In this class, we will identify local edible weeds and learn and sample recipes for preparing these common garden weeds that add variety to our diet without putting agricultural strain on the planet. Terri Wilde is an organic farmworker, forager, and wild foods educator.
