Nature reserves and parks are often thought of as places to seek out beautiful and interesting plants. It may surprise us that fascinating and useful plants can actually be found all around us – many people call them weeds. In this workshop, participants will look for “weeds,” see where they grow and identify them. We will search for information on their ecology, their broader distributions, and their various uses. Come prepared to spend a day learning about amazing plants that we encounter (and more often than not, overlook) every day. We may discover that our neighbourhoods are richer and more beautiful than they already are.
