About this book

When Katrina Blair was eleven, she had a life-changing experience during which wild plants spoke to her, beckoning her to become a champion of their cause. Since then she has spent months on end taking walkabouts in the wild, eating nothing but what she forages, and has become a wild-foods advocate, community activist, gardener, and chef, teaching and presenting internationally about foraging and the healthful lifestyle it promotes.

Blair's philosophy is sobering, realistic, and ultimately optimistic. By opening ourselves to the wisdom found in the weeds we now eradicate as invasives, we can achieve true food security. If we can become familiar with these thirteen ubiquitous survival weeds, we will never go hungry, and we will become closer to our own wild human instincts while enjoying the freshest, wildest, and most nutritious food there is – for free! The Wild Wisdom of Weeds is about healing ourselves both in body and in spirit, in an age where technology, commodity agriculture, and processed foods dictate the terms of our intelligence.
