Dandelion, burdock, violet leaf and ground ivy: just a few of the plants we've all encountered growing in our school and community gardens in between the rows of neatly cultivated tomato, carrot and brassica. Unwelcome as they may seem, these plants have been valued for centuries as medicines and sources of wild food. In this workshop educators and gardeners will learn ways to help young people develop their plant identification skills, and an appreciation of the healing plants—often discarded as mere weeds—that grow abundantly all over our city.
