The Forager’s Guide to Wild Foods, Edible Plants, Lichens, Mushrooms, and Seaweeds (the North American Edition) – By Nicole Apelian, Ph.D

Learn how to ethically harvest, store, and use the abundance of wild foods that surround you. This comprehensive book will become a favorite reference for you on your journey into wild foods and foraging. Each wild food entry in this book has an introduction, a range map, edible uses, common medicinal uses, poisonous lookalikes, a description of the flowers and leaves for ID, excellent color photos, harvesting instructions, and a simple recipe.

Inside, you’ll discover over 400 plants that never made it to most people’s lives, kitchens or medicine cabinets. The most important thing that I would like to show you, and that many books lack, is how to correctly identify these plants. I went through great lengths to print this book in color with HUGE pictures for each plant, to make it easy to identify.

Extra photos have been added of the defining features of the plant, so you will know exactly what to look for to make the correct identification. With the distribution map I added, you will also be able to search only for plants growing in your area. Because I want you to be 110% safe and sure you got the right plant, I added a Poisonous-Lookalike section for each plant explaining the differences you should look for.

Each plant that has medicinal properties also has a section on how to use it as a remedy. You will also find instructions on how to prepare the wild foods for several purposes, how and when to harvest, depending on the season, and a few delicious time-tested recipes to prepare these wild foods like a seasoned forager.

Does this cover everything?

No, no single book covers everything. This book covers the North American Region and we highly recommend adding it to your library.

Does GB2 offer edible and medicinal plant training?

Yes, we do and it all starts with the basics in a Wilderness Skills Course. Keep in mind, that information will be specific to the location of the class. Learning about everything in your area is often a lifelong pursuit, but it's never too late to start!
