As the cost of traditional food rises, more and more people are foraging in parks and other local wild areas.  They have also discovered there are many edible plants in their own back yard! For example, most people consider dandelions to be annoying weeds that ruin their pristine lawns. However, did you know that you can eat dandelion greens? You can even make tea from the flower or root! There are tremendous health benefits to consuming dandelions and many organic markets are now selling them for up to $8.99 a pound or higher!

In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host June Stoyer talks to Wildman Steve Brill about how to forage in the wild. Learn tips for teaching your kids how to identify edible wild plants and also some advice for foraging locally. Stay tuned!
