Eat the Weeds
'Long before I went to school my mother would hand me a table knife and a paper bag and tell me to go find some dandelion greens for supper. While doing that I noticed wild strawberries, later checkerberries, raspberries, apples and roses. My mother foraged as did my grandmother and great grandmother. I learned about plants long before I learned what their names were.'

Forage Wild Food
'Foraging is my passion and there is little I enjoy more than getting outside and searching for wild food. From 2009-11 I worked as a full time forager supplying wild ingredients to many of Britain’s top restaurants. As a result, I have built up a wealth of knowledge about hundreds of species of edible plants, gained through thousands of hours ‘in the field’ collecting and eating them.'

Wildman Steve Brill
The man who got arrested in Central Park for foraging dandelions... very informative website.
I have a confession to make to you all. Last week I got married with my love of more than 15 years. Secretly and minimal. No guest list, no wedding dress, no stress.
And experiencing that moment made me realise how much I am also married to the plant world. It really is like a marriage: I wake up with them, sleep with them, eat with them, learn with them, they are my support when I feel sick. I breathe their oxygen.
I take them with me wherever I go and they live in my heart.
They help me grow to become a better person.
They accept me just the way I am. They don't want me to become domesticated.
They put up with my mistakes.
As for me, I am very committed to them.
I will respect and honour them, no matter what.
We are so intertwined that hurting them would be hurting myself.

-Alliaria petiolata/Allaria officinalis-
English: Garlic Mustard, Garlic Root, Hedge Garlic, Sauce-alone, Jack-in-the-bush, Penny Hedge, Poor Man's Mustard.
French: L'Alliaire officinale, Herbe à ail
German: Knoblauchsrauke, Knoblauchskraut, Lauchkraut, Knoblauchhederich
Winter foraging: Even in february, wild edibles can be found. Join me in the public park where I discover some garlic mustard. The seeds of this plant are a big hit in France and used instead of eegular mustard seeds to make mustard. The leaf gives you the taste of garlic without leaving you with a smelly breath and the taproot can be used as a horseradish alternative.
