Find Delicious and Healthful Plants Hiding in Plain Sight

With more than fifty recipes, hands-on activities, and thought-provoking social themes, Rebecca Randall Gilbert shows you exciting ways to incorporate common wild plants into your life. This beginner-friendly book provides eight essential foraging lessons based on classes Rebecca taught at Camp Jabberwocky (the oldest sleepaway camp in the US for people with disabilities). You'll learn how to gather edible flowers, work with invasive species, find flavor correspondences, process healing plants, and preserve your harvest with fermentation. From roots, seeds, and sprouts to mint, sassafras, and beyond, this practical guide deepens your understanding of plants and reveals important life lessons.

Includes a foreword by Michael Leon, longtime counselor at Camp Jabberwocky
