Edible Food Choices in Garden's Weeds
There is nothing more pleasant than walking through your garden and being able to pick leaves from your plants to eat. I know I find it incredibly refreshing to munch on a couple of basil or parsley leaves as I water my garden. Yet herbs are only the beginning; there are a huge number of weeds growing in your garden that can be just as appetising and rich in nutrients ready for you to eat. You just need to know which ones and for what purpose.

On Sunday 24th June 2018 from 12:30 to 2.00pm you can join a group of enthusiasts at the Premaculture CommUNITY Garden in Bayswater where Carla Weir from Gaia's Organic Gardens will educate you on new garden opportunities.

Carla grew up in Queensland and inherited her skills for permaculture from her mother. She is a lifelong nurturer of gardens, healer of spirits and seeker of connection to the earth. Over many years people have harmed the earth through toxic habits. Carla founded the non-profit "Gaia's Organic Gardens" where she mentors others to connect with their gardens, grow their own food and to live a healthier life through sustainable living practices.

A portion of funds collected from her services is funnelled back into the local community programmes and excess produce is distributed to the needy.
