Delve into the richness of Wet Season foraging with this hardcopy Foraging Guide, delivered to your doorstep.

Discover the wonders of seven abundant, easily located, and versatile edible wild weeds flourishing during the wet, cold, and winter seasons. Foraging becomes a powerful means of independently sourcing local, fresh, seasonal food and medicine, with these edible weeds offering a treasure trove of vitamins, minerals, and medicinal properties.

This A5 booklet serves as your initiation into Wet Season/Winter foraging, centering on seven edible weeds abundantly found across New Zealand and temperate regions worldwide during the wet and cool months.

The guide encompasses:

  • Foraging basics
  • Sustainable foraging practices
  • Comprehensive 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 illustrating each plant at various life stages for accurate identification
    • Engaging folklore and history associated with each plant, aiding in retention

The featured plants in this guide—Chickweed, Purple Dead Nettle, Onion Weed, Gorse, Violets, Cleavers, and Miners Lettuce—were selected for their abundance throughout New Zealand during the wet seasons (Autumn through to Spring), 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 flourish 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.

A Vital Guide

In this day and age of reduced vitamins and nutrients in our modern vegetables, this book introduces true SuperFood back to our memory banks, and our tummies. I bought the Wet, and Dry season books, and the Plantain and Puha pdfs, and am now eating Cleavers, Chickweed, Violet, Puha, Narrow-leaf plantain, Dandelion, plus Nasturtium as part of my diet. There are other weeds too (oops, I mean SUPERFOODS) that I'll include in my kai as I identify them. Wow publications! THANK YOU, Felicity Joy.

Excellent

The information & photography in this book, is excellent, easy to read and very easy to distinguish when foraging. Especially for the novice who wishes to regain forgotten knowledge.
This book would make a wonderful gift.

Foraging Guides

All of Felicity’s products shine with integrity and careful attention to detail. I bought both foraging guides. The photographs are beautiful and the information very helpful. I’m an experienced forager but bought them to re-inspire my practice and it definitely worked! I read them and the. went straight outside to see what I could find. Highly recommend these lovely guides.
