Whilst I've written this book specifically for those foraging in New Zealand, and all of these plants are found abundantly in NZ, they're also abundantly found in Australia, Europe, North America and many other temperate regions. All of the mentioned 'weeds' were introduced into NZ by the Europeans, so have come at some point in their history via Europe.

I read both guides alongside of attending to your edible weeds workshops. I feel very grateful for it wanted to thank you Felicity. I'm very admirative of your work and I love your personality. You obviously loves what you do and your passion contaminates the audience. You manage to translate your knowledge into a language we can all understand. I've been following you for a bit as well as using your balms and oils (from far the best I ever used). It doesn't seem there is something you can't do well. On top of being a great herbalist and teacher, your photographs are stunning, I love your writing (you're interesting and funny), the food you serve at your workshops is delicious and the naturally dyed clothes you do are just pieces of arts. I'll finish this love letter with a few very important topics to me. Felicity you've got very high ethics and are respectful to nature and its inhabitants. I love that you use only natural products (the real natural products not the so-called) for any item you sell. Every item i got from you was such a good quality. I admire that you try so hard you keep succeeding. Please keep being you, I love you how you are.
