Nature Awareness Series

Free for everyone! | The "Truth" About Weeds!

Tuesdays | 8 –8:30 pm | Jan 26
Hosted by Kirsten Cook

The "Truth" About Weeds--The purpose of this workshop is to give participants a better idea of what w**ds are and why we call them that. We will also expand up on the idea that "w**d" is a social construct that many cultures, especially indigenous ones, don't have a word for. Then we will discuss the positives and negatives of common w**ds, and if we have time, I'll tell you which ones are edible!
