7th: Eat the Weeds: Finding Peace, Rather than War, in your Garden

Simi Valley Community Gardens.
10:00am-11:30pm.
A “weed” is simply a plant that we have yet to understand its worth. Some of our common garden “weeds” are actually our most nutrient dense edible plants, offering nutrients we are missing in our modern diets. Jess Starwood, herbalist, forager and plant-based chef, will share tips and tricks to utilize these invaders to our advantage. We will be tasting and sampling some of these amazing plants as gourmet foods. Suggested donation of $10. Twenty five percent of your donation goes to the Simi Valley Community Gardens.
