Explore the wonders of Hot Season foraging with this hardcopy Foraging Guide, conveniently delivered to your doorstep.

Dive into the abundance of nature as you discover six easily accessible and versatile edible wild weeds flourishing during the Summer months. Foraging becomes a powerful means of independently sourcing fresh, seasonal food and medicine, with many of these edible weeds offering a rich array of vitamins, minerals, and medicinal properties.

This A5 booklet is your gateway to Hot Season/Summer foraging, focusing on six edible weeds prolifically found throughout New Zealand and temperate regions globally during the warm and dry summer periods.

The guide encompasses:

  • Foraging basics
  • Sustainable foraging practices
  • In-depth information for each weed, including:
    • Accurate identification and tips, distinguishing from common lookalikes
    • Nutritional and medicinal insights
    • Preparation as food and medicine with easy-to-follow recipes
    • Detailed, high-quality photographs depicting each plant at various life stages for accurate identification
    • Fascinating folklore and history associated with each plant, aiding in retention

The featured plants in this guide—Dandelion, Nasturtium, Yarrow, Fat Hen, Self Heal, and Fennel—were chosen for their abundance across New Zealand during the Summer, as well as their diverse uses in food and medicine.

Tailored for both absolute beginners and seasoned foragers, this guide provides ample information and confidence to commence your foraging journey independently. Seasoned foragers will appreciate the extensive nutritional and medicinal details, along with the captivating folklore.

While specifically crafted for New Zealand foragers, these plants abound in Australia, Europe, North America, and various temperate regions. Originating from Europe, these 'weeds' were introduced to New Zealand, making the guide a valuable resource across different continents and climates.

Trying not to be so 'tidy' now :)

Great guide

Got this at the workshop and read it during the following week along with doing my own foraging. Super useful guide with all the information you need but beautiful and keeps it simple too.
