Edible “Weeds” with Mike Essam: Saturday, May 12, 2018, 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.

Before you plant your lettuce or spinach, consider what nature is already providing in abundance. Many of what our culture consider weeds” are actually nutritiously superior foods to that which you purchase at market.  Learn the wild foods that grow without planting, watering, or weeding; and the best part-they’re free!

Join Mike Essam,  as he teaches the virtues of some of these wild  gems, from Amaranth to Purslane. We’ll take a short walk and Mike will point out edible  “weeds”.
