Most people don’t want weeds in their gardens. But at Assiniboine Community College, there is a whole garden dedicated to nothing but weeds. Homeowners, gardeners, farmers and anyone else having trouble figuring out what weeds are growing where they’re not supposed to can bring them to the weed garden for identification. All the weeds have signs identifying their species.

“We are developing the garden as a learning resource, both for students and the public. Gardening clubs, lawn and garden companies, anyone looking for a fun and informative activity can come to the weed garden. You can even have a picnic there!” said agriculture instructor Danielle Tichit.

The Weed Identification Garden is open Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., for self-guided tours.

It’s located beside the Sustainable Greenhouse at the college’s North Hill campus. Enter from Lori Road and follow the signs.
