Make sure you catch this unique opportunity to join writer, columnist and weed cuisine queen Kristina Jensen as she leads this intriguing and informative hands-on weed “playshop”.

• Learn to identify six-ten common edible “weeds”, and get a practical demonstration showing how you can use them to make delicious wild weed pestos, salads and green smoothies.

• Learn how weeds can make your garden stronger and how you can best feed your plants and your soil (which means ultimately feeding YOU!)

• Learn how weeds can be used medicinally in herbal teas and poultices.

Kristina is passionate about changing the way we look at the plants we call “weeds”, and her primary aim is to educate people about them in a practical hands-on way. She reads voraciously and collects anecdotal material about these humble colonisers, the plants that may seem like pests to many of us, but which are in fact of great nutritional, medicinal and biological value.

 

Kristina has a regular column in Lifestyle Block and Kiwi Gardener magazines, and has had features published in Wilderness, Allergy Today, FETCH!, One Smile, NZ Lifestyle Farmer, Tots To Teens, NZ Outdoors and NZ Rod & Rifle; US magazines including BackWoodsHome, New Pioneer and Living Aboard, UK’s Mother Magazine and Circle, and Australian magazines Living Now and Earth Garden.
