First published nearly forty years ago by noted wild edibles authority Doug Benoliel, the original Northwest foraging became the standard field guide for the region's wild foods. Now fully updated and expanded, the new edition provides thorough descriptions of more than 50 common edible plants including asparagus, watercress, camas, fireweed, and many more. Includes illustrations, simple recipes, seasonal charts, and regional and Native American history.
Doug Benoliel's enthusiasm and fascination with plants led to a degree in botany from the University of Washington in 1969. He has been utilizing and teaching about wild edible plants ever since, in community colleges, recreational centers, and with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). He and his wife live on a small, organic vegetable farm on Lopez Island.
This event is co-sponsored by the Community Food Co-Op and Sustainable Connections.
