Urban foraging: Nutritious weeds growing in your backyard

Dandelions, plantain and cat's ear are three of the most common edible weeds growing in gardens and street verges across Canberra.

Urban forager Sarah Aylott told ABC Radio Canberra's Lish Fejer that these plants come from a long list of edible and highly nutritious weeds.

"Dandelion is the wild ancestor from which we cultivated broccolini, kale, brussels sprouts and kohlrabi," Ms Aylott said.
