Edible Weed Forage with Annie

Price $22.50 – $45 AUD + BF Get tickets

Event description

Take a walk around the farm with Annie Raser-Rowland, co-author of the bestselling Weed Forager's Handbook, and discover the marvelous world of edible weeds - free, tasty, super-nutritious, and growing right at your back door! Learn which ones you can eat, how to harvest and prepare them, and hear about humanity's rich history of appreciating these plants.

As part of our permaculture practice we often let weeds grow in our garden beds, they feed the pollinators, and sometimes us too!Β Take advantage of our spray-free farm to learn all about weeds from an expert.

Please note this walk will involved moving around the Perth City Farm site which has some uneven surfaces. The main pathways are compacted gravel though, which should suit most wheeled mobility devices. Please reach out to us if you think this may prevent you from attending the workshop.

Annie Raser-Rowland used to make art, but became suspicious that the natural world was frequently outdoing her, and with greater finesse. She took up making gardens for the sake of beauty, but soon realised she could feed herself at the same time. Her passion for exploring alternative food sources has since led to studies in permaculture and horticulture, and co-authoringΒ The Weed Forager’s Handbook: A Guide to Edible and Medicinal Weeds in Australia and The Art of Frugal Hedonism: A Guide to Spending Less While Enjoying Everything More.

This event will take place during Perth City Farm's weekly Farmer's Market, so make sure you leave time to explore the
stalls and treats on offer!

Perth City Farm is a community urban farm that supports connected, sustainable communities. Established on a former industrial site in East Perth, this polluted site has been lovingly rehabilitated by volunteers to become a Western Australian icon for environmental sustainability and community engagement. We provide space and opportunities to build community connections, and educate and enable people to live sustainably
