a joint presentation by Dr. Eva Pip and Igor Kaftan  - Gardens Manitoba Board members and avid gardeners.

An entertaining talk on identifying common weeds in our lawns & gardens. Those plants may look pretty but are they garden thugs come to invade your green space or are they edible? How do you know which plants are weeds or good to eat?  Igor and Eva have been collecting weeds from various gardens throughout the summer for this presentation. Dr. Eva Pip will talk about edible weeds and how to put them to good and healthy use.
