Urban wild edibles video

Post by Purple_Mutant » Fri Dec 19, 2014 7:27 pm

Here is a video on 13 edible plants that grow in urban environments. The video does get a bit into new age hippie land; so take it for what it's worth. As with anything, take the time to research it. Not everything posted on the internet is true :wink:



You should also check out some of the guy's other videos. He has some really excellent videos on organic gardening. I have employed some of his ideas in my own gardening with great success.

If you have a local library, a good eye, and some time, you can quickly learn that there are edibles all around you in an urban, suburban, and border environments that are completely edible and nutritious. Most can be eaten raw when young but almost all can be stewed or stir-fried. I have harvested plantain, dandelion, burdock, orache, wild mustard greens, wild onions, berries, acorns, asparagus, bok choy, marrow, feral squash, rose hips, and cattail pollen. With some meat, fish, and grain, one can more than just survive; one can flourish. There are also plenty of old gardens that have gone to seed where houses once stood that can supply you with vegetables, herbs, and fruit. Call your local agricultural extension agent or park naturalist if you want to learn more.

Groovy. So far I have only done dandelion greens from the backyard.
