Foraging as a Way of Life (EPUB)

A Year-Round Field Guide to Wild Plants

Nourish your family from nature's pantry. Foraging as a Way of Life documents twelve months of wildcrafting, featuring five different plants each month for a full year of abundant local and seasonal eating. Enhance your sense of self-sufficiency while increasing food security, protecting habitat, and connecting with the land.

This lavishly illustrated, accessibly written, in-depth resource features:

  • Accurate and detailed descriptions of herbs, mushrooms, berries, and other wild plants to avoid confusion and inspire confidence when determining plant identification.
  • Foraging recipes for remedies, tonics, syrups, and handcrafted unique dishes incorporating wild ingredients—feast on rosehip soup with pan-fried dandelion flowers, followed by birch-bark cookies or chicory chocolate bars.
  • Extensive guidance for safe use or consumption of each species, including cautions, lookalikes, and tips for sustainable harvesting.

Drawing on the author's own lived experience and her study of herbalism and ethnobotany, Foraging as a Way of Life is designed to inspire readers to share the exuberance and joy of wild foods while finding nourishment and connection in their local fields or forests. A must for every gardener who would like to gather dinner while weeding, for those wishing to learn sustainable harvesting while hiking, or for anyone who wants to create healthy, foraged meals while living lightly on the planet.
