Wild edible plants….free food !

You could own and fly this airplane

Most people don’t realize how much fantastic food is growing all around them.    All you have to do is stop for a minute and ask, “what did people do before there were grocery stores ?”.    Really… they lived for THOUSANDS of years without any stores.  Slowly people got lazy, forgot, etc, and here we are..

John Kallas, PHD  has written a great book.   Edible Wild Plants, wild food from dirt to plate.
