Weed Identification: The Good, The Bad, The Beneficial

August 28, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Ever wonder what all of those unwanted plants are popping up around your garden? In this class, we’ll teach you how to identify these plants and what their purpose is in your garden. Looking at what’s growing in your yard can teach you a lot about what’s happening under the soil. We’ll talk about how to “read your weeds” as well as go over which common weeds are beneficial for pollinators, invasive, medicinal/edible or adding nutrients to your soil.

This class will meet at Tiny Diner and then travel one block to Bancroft-Meridian Garden, a permaculture designed food forest that offers free fruit to the community.

Instructor Information:  Neal Baxter has been the coordinator of Bancroft-Meridian Garden for many years and is a board member on the neighborhood council.

Andrea Eger is Tiny Diner’s Permaculture Education Coordinator and has been a community organizer and organic farmer for the past 5 years. She received a Permcaultre Certification in 2012.
