Welcome to Julia’s Edible Weeds

Join me on a journey of discovering how wild edible plants and green smoothies can help improve your health and well-being. I’m passionate about edible weeds and leafy greens and I want to show you how to use these highly nutritious foods to boost your health and vitality.

I will be updating this site regularly with new findings from my research on edible weeds and flowers, my latest wild edible recipes, and other interesting tidbits on growing organic food and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Aaron Smart, a professional film maker has created this lovely little film about my work and my love of weeds and eating them. It was entered in the Byron Bay Film Festival.

Here’s what Karen said about the workshop she attended March 2015:

“Julia, your workshop today about edible weeds has changed my whole way of thinking about them; how they live, why they are here, what their benefits are to us and the planet, they are truly magical plants. Your passion for what you do and share is infectious and inspiring. I would recommend this workshop to anyone of all ages.
Eternally Grateful”
