Weedy Lawn and Garden Salad

Have you been throwing Chenopodium album onto the compost heap all this time?!  That’s lambsquarters - spinach’s wildly nutritious cousin. Weeding the garden becomes a delight when you realize that so many “weeds” are actually superfoods!   Join Shawn Severance and the wild food foragers to learn about all sorts of garden weeds that can impart delicious flavor and nutrition to your spring salads.  Gardeners, please bring your herbs and greens!   We will forage the wild greens and make a Gardener meets Forager salad for all to share.   In partnership with Project Grow and Will Forage for Food.

Shawn Severance is  the Parks Naturalist at Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation
