Eat the Weeds

  • Stryker Garden Stryker Ave. S. & Elizabeth St. W. St. Paul, MN, 55107

Spring is finally arriving! Birds are returning, flowers are popping up, and leaves are unfurling. Many of these awakening plants are disdained as weeds, but a good portion of these “weeds” are delicious and healthful wild edibles. Join the North Country Food Alliance, Growing West Side, and WSCO Sustainable Living Committee as we explore the West Side of St. Paul and learn what delectable weeds spring has to offer. We will discuss the identification, harvest, and preparation of a variety of wild foods, including dandelion, lamb’s quarters, burdock, and stinging nettle.

Meet at the Stryker Garden on the corner of Stryker Ave S. and Elizabeth St. W.  I will have a sign.

Suggested donation of $5. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
