According to Pat, weeds also have culinary uses, plus are good companions in the garden for vegetables, fruit trees, flowers, and can tell you about the quality of your soil.
Her book, The Wondrous World of Weeds, features 100 common world-wide weeds, and each plant includes a full description and identification along with a photograph, distribution of where they typically grow, a list of their common names, their uses, and what medicinal value they have.
Her ‘Weed Workshops’ are extremely popular, where she shares her extensive knowledge of useful weeds. At home, she even collects her weeds to make many of the medicines that she uses at her practice, The Total Health and Education Centre. It opened 18 years ago, and stocks only products that she manufactures herself and sells worldwide.
