MID-MICHIGAN (WNEM) -

It’s National Weed Appreciation Day!

And we know what you’re thinking…. It’s not that kind of weed.

The unofficial holiday is celebrated on March 28 every year.

There are several types of weeds in the world. Some are annoying and have to be pulled from our yards every year, while others are beneficial to us and our ecosystem.

Some types of weeds, such as dandelions and purslane, are edible and a good source of vitamins. Dandelions have vitamin A and C, calcium iron and fiber.
