The Weed Forager's Handbook: A Guide to Edible and Medicinal Weeds in Australia
Adam Grubb & Annie Raser-Rowland 2012 (AUS)
'Cast aside those weed goggles' advises Costa Georgiadis in the foreword to this handy foraging reference. To appreciate weeds, we need to look at them in a different light - to see them for their many positive properties and benefits. Weeds are pioneers, the first plants to inhabit disturbed ground. They help prevent erosion, rebuild soil fertility and structure and create habitat. Many of these useful plants are edible or have medicinal benefits; so why aren't we all weed foragers? With this pocket-sized book, you'll be able to identify and use 20 common weeds using concise descriptions, colour photographs and botanical illustrations. The 10 rules of weed collecting will help the novice forage confidently and safely for their first weed-based meal. Nettles, amaranth, thistles, chickweed, nasturtiums, dandelions - there could be a weed salad just a short walk away! There are interesting anecdotes and some weedy recipes - I can't wait to make Prickly Pear Pizza and Nettle Gnocchi. Colour photographs and illustrations throughout. 166pp
