When you walk across a field, do you ever wonder if any of it is edible? You may recognize several ‘weeds’ in there such as dandelion and clover but the rest is just ‘wild plants’ or other weeds to you. What most people don’t realize or ever stop to think about is how much of what they aggressively try to eradicate from their laws is actually FOOD! The best part? Dandelions and clover are edibles found everywhere!
Many people today are interested in ways to save money and the food bill is usually up high on the list.

What they end up learning is there are edibles found everywhere in plain sight, even in the cities!
It can be hard to learn about all the wild edibles in your specific location, just as it is difficult to find edibles that are found on every continent and in most climates.
