Learn about some of the most common herbs that are considered weeds growing in our urban areas. There are so many medicinals and edibles growing between the cracks in the concrete and the edges of our green spaces! Join us as we discuss how many of these species came to be here, how they can be used, and identifying features that will help you recognize them the next time you see them in your path.
