Get Off Your Grass and Create an Edible Lawn

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One who can identify edible plants in their area can improve their personal health, the health of their environment, better stretch their food budget, and have a skill should they ever be lost in the wilderness. In addition, creating edible lawns and parks will feed more people and promote local food and better health in the community. Join renowned herbalist Brigitte Mars to learn to connect the issues of health, food, and native plant species to use and identify common wild plants that most people consider "weeds" yet are really valuable edible and medicinal plants that can improve the health of people and the planet. When participants leave this workshop, they can go home with a skill and see that useful plants are everywhere and that using our valuable resources to water grass , and using chemicals to poison our lawns is not creating a viable future.
