The next time you’re out pulling weeds in the garden or stepping over a dandelion sticking out from the cracks of the sidewalk, consider where these wild greens could go: your salad bowl.

In this educational video produced by the design blog Inhabitat, foraging expert“Wildman” Steve Brill showcases seven exotic-sounding but common weeds you can eat: Garlic Mustard, Poor Man’s Pepper, Yellow Sorrel, Violet, Field Pennycress, Common Mallow and Cattail. They’re scattered all over Central Park in New York City, where Brill takes students on an expedition, and can be found up and down the East Coast in the summer months, too. They’re delicious, he says.
