Do you know which weed has a root that supports the liver, and the leaves that support the kidneys? Do you know how to recognize the plant with the affectionate nickname of 'nature's band-aid?' Or how about a common weed that provides abundant omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D?
Join Kyla Zaro-Moore for an herb walk in Atlanta's Edgewood neighborhood on Friday, April 27, from 5-7pm, to find out the answer to all these questions and more.
Hosted by the Atlanta Free School (yes, this is a free class) at 80 Mayson Ave, 30317, this walk will cover identification and uses of several common weeds and herbs found in urban ecosystems.
You may not know it, but if you are Not spraying to kill weeds, you may already have an edible and medicinal landscape!
