Eat Weeds: A Field Guide To Foraging by Diego Bonetto

Eat Weeds: A Field Guide To Foraging - How to identify, harvest and use wild plants.

There is food within 3 metres of your front door. Three generations ago it was common practice all over the world to collect this wild food; knowledge of what, where and when to forage was a necessary part of daily life. We still had lived experience of harvesting wild food with our own hands. But with the advent of supermarket culture the knowledge associated with foraging has mostly been lost.

Today, we want this knowledge back. From forest to seaside, riverbank to city street – even your own yard – there is wild food and medicine available to those who know where to look. In the face of global challenges such as climate change, food insecurity and pandemics, we seek to empower ourselves with the information and skills that enable self-reliance and equip us to care for our families and communities.

Eat Weeds shows you how to engage with wild food sources, transforming your neighbourhood into an edible adventure.
