Identifying Wild Edible Weeds and Making Green Superfood Smoothies

Green Smoothie

You’ll be amazed how many ‘weeds’ in your garden you can eat!

I’ll show you how to identify wild edible weeds, the ones you can safely eat and those not so good to eat, and lots about their nutritional, medicinal and cultural values.  We’ll go foraging for them identifying them where they grow.    We will then transform them, together with leafy greens and ripe seasonal fruit into a luscious green smoothie which will greatly enhance your health.

Greerton, Tauranga

Wild Edible Experience in Greerton

I am bursting with excitement about offering the first workshop at my new home on a back section in Greerton.  I am creating a haven for wildlife and nature right here in the city, just minutes from the Greerton shops.  All the wild edibles have followed me from the farm (I either transplanted them or they came stealthily as seeds in the compost) and so I feel happy to have my friends around me. I’ve planted fruit trees and am keen to share how I’m developing sustainable systems and growing lots of food to feed myself and others.  Come see what I’m up to and learn about the wild edibles and sample treats made with them. This is a Sustainable Backyard BOP event.

Whakamarama, Bay of Plenty

March is Sustainable Backyard month in the Bay of Plenty.  This year I’ll be running a workshop from the beautiful property of Plenty Permaculture  which is the home of the Permaculture design certificate in the Bay of Plenty.  It is also a place of incredible abundance, with a thriving vegetable business, as well as fruit trees and lots of weeds for us to discover. We’ll learn all about why we have weeds, what they tell us about the land, their nutritional and medicinal uses through the sensory experiencing of them.  Following this we’ll go on a foraging walk, identifying them where they grow and I’ll be sharing cultural and historical stories about them.  These freshly picked edible weeds will be transformed into delicious green, super food smoothie for you to sample, along with some weed pesto.  This is an interactive  experience as I learn as much from you as you from me, about these amazing plants.

Date: Sunday 11 March 2018
Time: 10-1pm
Venue: 375 Whakamarama Road, Whakamarama, 3176

Consultations

I am available to visit your garden within the Tauranga area to help identify the ‘weeds’ you have around you, or to run a workshop with a group of your friends or neighbours from your own home.

Feedback

Testimonial from Liz of a visit to her garden for a one-on-one session:

After having been to one of Julia’s Edible Weed workshops at the end of September 2013, which I thoroughly enjoyed and learned lots, I found that once back in my own (very unruly) garden there were many more weeds that we didn’t come across at the workshop or else I had forgotten what they were and couldn’t find them in the book.

I asked Julia if she would be happy to come and visit my place to help me identify some of them. We spent a couple of hours meandering around finding all sorts of wonderful treasures. As Julia told me about the plant she would hand me a leaf and/or flower and I’d cellotape it in a scrapbook, add the name and any other details such as: best “added to smoothie”, “cooked”, “raw in salad”, “leaves and/or flowers eaten”.

Having a one on one with Julia gave me the opportunity to ask lots of questions which is not always easy in a big group and I now have the dried specimens from my own garden to which I can refer should there be a memory lapse.

Thank you Julia for opening my eyes to nature’s gifts all around, which enables me to sit back and enjoy the chaos that is my garden.
Liz, Pyes Pa

I am also willing to travel to other towns to give workshops for groups.

Please contact me with your request.
