“In other words, if you eat, then this book is a must-have companion.” ~ Costa Georgiadis, host of Gardening Australia, from his excellent foreword(!)
“This handbook is the essential text for both novice and experienced wild food foragers. The guidelines, excellent ID photos and choice of most useful and common species will give the novice confidence while the facts and recipes will extend all but the most advanced weed aficionados. For the gardener tired of joyless weeding Adam and Annie open our eyes to the fact that the problem can indeed be the solution.” ~ David Holmgren, co-originator of the permaculture concept
