Can we refashion the reputation of weeds? With many negative connotations surrounding weeds it’s hard to switch their image to foods and herbal medicines to love. We may call them edible weeds or wild foods, but I would love to change the name. I’m working on my own relationship with weeds by getting to know lamb’s quarters.
