I just returned from a beautiful walk, and along the way I had the opportunity to wildcraft some delicious spring greens. It can be a challenge in today’s world to make time for simple pleasures, but harvesting wild food has been a huge gift in my life. Wildcrafting provides an opportunity to slow down, connect with Nature, increase health & vitality, and fill the belly all at once. You don’t have to go far to find wild foods, oftentimes they are literally along the paths we walk every day. Wild food is usually orders of magnitude more nutritionally dense than domesticated food, and often includes highly medicinal qualities as well. Today I was harvesting Miner’s Lettuce (pictured above, click for more information), one of the most juicy and mild-tasting wild greens available. For anyone interested in wildcrafting their own food, I have included a few resources in this week’s top 5.
I hope you are all finding value in this series, and if you have feedback, we would love to hear it. If you have interest in a specific area, please let me know! I can guide the content according to what is most in demand. Originally these posts were going to come out every Friday, but have naturally been coming out bi-weekly… I think this pace is probably much more manageable for us all, including our mental inboxes.
On behalf of everyone at Living Landscapes, I wish you a beautiful and nourishing weekend and beyond!
