Edible and Medicinal "Weeds" of the Bay Area
Ecology Center
Berkeley, CA
Share this event:


Non-native invasive plant species are the bane to many gardeners, landscapers, and other such plant enthusiasts...but not to those who know better! In fact, many so called "weeds" are actually quite useful as either wild foods or medicines. Because they thrive on disturbed soils, these plants abound in areas of high population density and can be found in great abundance in and around the cities of the San Francisco Bay Area. Due to their damaging effects on native plant habitats, their harvest and use makes practical sense and should always be encouraged over the use of our own native species. In this way, we help to restore and preserve our native plant communities at the same time as restoring and preserving our own health! Come join us as we learn how to better utilize these vilified urban renegades that are so often needlessly wasted. This class includes a lecture/slideshow, a large selection of live plant samples, edible/medicinal plant tasting, and botanical I.D lessons.  Instructor: Tellur Fenner (Blue Wind Botanical Medicine Clinic & Education Center, http://www.bluewindbmc.com). Make sure to bring: Water, lunch, notebook, and a camera. Pre-registration and pre-payment required.
