Dr. Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen, author, forager and edible wild, (and some not so wild) plant expert joins us tonight to discuss foraging for edible wild plants that grow all across the nation. I have been telling folks that they have a duty to be prepared for any kind of aa rough spot in life including dealing with disasters, food shortages etc. And being able to identify edible plants that are growing wild in the woods, vacant fields, in your own backyard, is a skill we should all have.
When not running scieintific experiments for his paying job at his lab, Dr. Merriwether can be found in the woods and fields across the nation identifying and studying edible wild plants.
Dr. Merriwether devotes a great amount of what spare time he has teaching foraging courses to the public at different locations around the state, and he has a website and a blog page dedicated to bringing this information to to the public.
Food prices will soon be at a level Americans have never seen before. If you can help stretch your grocery dollar by foraging for a bt of your food, you might be able to shift those saved dollars over to ammunition. Dr. Merriwether will be talking about what you can do to help put some food on your table, in all seasons, by foraging, on the plains, in the woods, the mountains and swamps, even if you live in a city, there are still ways to supplement your diet by foraging. Be sure to listen and find out how.
