Every week, homeowners across North America spray their lawns with chemicals, killing plants that their grandparents and great-grandparents would have picked and eaten.
In fact, most homeowners likely don’t even realize that those “pesky weeds” are actually edible – and far healthier for you than many items already in the refrigerator.
On this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio we take a look at some of the most common plants you can forage and eat – whether in your yard or in the wilderness. Our guest is Mark “Merriweather” Vorderbruggen, a foraging expert and the author of the new book Foraging, part of the Idiot’s Guide series by DK.
Merriweather tells us:

ν Why it’s essential that every homeowner and off-gridder learn how to forage, even if food is readily available at the local store or in the garden.
ν How foraging played a critical role in feeding his family years ago, essentially keeping them from starving.
ν Why foraged plants are healthier than many common foods we eat every week.
ν Which wild plants you can eat that are growing in your yard right now.
Merriweather also tells us the easiest-to-find wild plants you can eat in the forest, and he closes by listing the biggest foraging mistakes people often make.
If you’re an off-gridder or simply have a love for nature and self-reliance, then this week’s show is for you!
