Embark on a journey of discovery with the Wild Edible Weeds Foraging Guide, a hardcopy reference guide dispatched directly to your doorstep.

Uncover the secrets of six abundant, easily located, and versatile edible wild weeds that thrive year-round. Foraging becomes a liberating experience, enabling you to independently procure local, fresh, and seasonal food and medicine. Edible weeds, rich in vitamins, minerals, and medicinal properties, are abundantly scattered throughout our wild landscapes.

This A5 booklet serves as your gateway to foraging for wild edible weeds, concentrating on six varieties abundantly found across New Zealand and temperate regions worldwide, including Australia, North America, and Europe.

The guide encompasses:

  • Foraging basics
  • Sustainable foraging practices
  • In-depth information for each weed, covering:
    • 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
    • Engaging folklore and history associated with each plant, enhancing memorability

The featured plants in this guide—Plantain, Stinging Nettle, Dock, Sheep Sorrel, Catsear, and Puha—were chosen for their year-round abundance across New Zealand, as well as their diverse uses in food and medicine.

Tailored for both beginners and seasoned foragers, this guide provides ample information and confidence to embark on your independent foraging journey. 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. Introduced to New Zealand by Europeans, these 'weeds' have journeyed through history and continents, making the guide a valuable resource for diverse landscapes and climates.

I’ve bought the whole set for myself and found them to be so good that I bought a set for my brother who lives out in the wilds and he’s found them to be great too…and so helpful in identifying what is all around him
