Summary "This is a book about beginning foraging based on classes at Camp Jabberwocky. While it is not a field guide to plants, it invites the reader to incorporate foraging into their life, providing a range of discussion from leaves as foundational food; the basics of roots, seeds, and sprouts; and working with invasive plants, to eating flowers; working with fermentation; and making use of plants for first aid. Profiles are included for some example plants, and recipes are also included"-- Provided by publisher.
