What you'll do

We will chat about the common edible weeds found across the world and why eating weeds is the ultimate slow food. We will explore local gardens, the neighbourhood and the banks of the uMngeni River. After identifying various tasty edibles, we will gather our favourites. Over a simple picnic that includes wild food (and other ingredients produced by the local Slow Food Community - artisan bread, calf-at-foot cheese, unusual chutney), there will be an opportunity to ask questions and discover new flavours. Participants will have the opportunity to purchase a local cookbook which includes a section on common edible weeds (all funds to support township food security programme).

Nikki

I am a locavore, food activist and regular weed eater. I am astonished at the free food all around us, which often goes unused and am constantly trying new plants I find on my walks - always doing a little research before tasting them! I know all the spots in our area to find edible weeds and wild food - and where to source the best local ingredients in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.
