Finding affordable, healthy food for our families is becoming increasingly difficult. Prices are rising in the supermarkets, and finding foods that aren’t laced with hormones or unnecessary preservatives is next to impossible. Yet, there is a whole world of delicious, nutritious, and widely available food growing in your backyard right now. Wild edibles are everywhere you turn, and collecting them is the cornerstone of wilderness self-sufficiency. These are plants that our ancestors thrived on, and often these edibles offer more nutrition that the vegetables you pay for in the store!
