“Violets are blue” (or more purple, don’t you think?) and pretty; dandelions can make your nose yellow; and nettles do that stingy thing if you’re not careful. But there’s a whole bunch more to know about these common plants that could affect your opinion of them.
Depending on which are most plentiful on this day-- violets, dandelions or nettle--- you will learn about their healing properties and how to make useful and delicious things from these wild plants, such as jam, pasta, chai tea, sachets and more.
