All around us are growing some incredible plants that are better for you than the vegetables you are striving to grown in your veggie garden. And in some cases they are healing and highly prized medicinal plants or considered gourmet in other cultures. Yes I’m talking about weeds… Edible Weeds.

The weeds in your garden are probably growing like crazy. If you would like to spend your weekends weeding than this workshop is not the place for you. In this workshop we teach you to understand your weeds, giving you simple organic solutions to your weed control problem, No more need to spray harsh and harmful chemicals that can damage your families health.

Weeds are fascinating misunderstood plants. Plants we all brought here for one reason or another, and mother nature, Gaia, keeps them in the our environment for a reason. Lets uncover all of the lost and forgotten secrets of these wonderful weeds. After all a weed is just a plant in the wrong place.

  • Learn more about your weeds and learn what the weeds are telling you about your soil and eco system.
  • Learn what weeds to prioritize the removal of and which are useful.
  • Learn hands on strategies to deal with your "weed problem".
