Foraging For Survival: Wild Plants You Didn’t Know You Could Eat

Written by: Ryan Hartman Radio

Every week, homeowners across North America spray their lawns with chemicals, killing plants that their grandparents and great-grandparents would have picked and eaten.

In fact, most homeowners likely don’t even realize that those “pesky weeds” are actually edible – and far healthier for you than many items already in the refrigerator.

On this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio we take a look at some of the most common plants you can forage and eat – whether in your yard or in the wilderness. Our guest is Mark “Merriweather” Vorderbruggen, a foraging expert and the author of the new book Foraging, part of the Idiot’s Guide series by DK.

Merriweather tells us:

😄 Why it’s essential that every homeowner and off-gridder learn how to forage, even if food is readily available at the local store or in the garden.

😄 How foraging played a critical role in feeding his family years ago, essentially keeping them from starving.

😄 Why foraged plants are healthier than many common foods we eat every week.

😄 Which wild plants you can eat that are growing in your yard right now.

Merriweather also tells us the easiest-to-find wild plants you can eat in the forest, and he closes by listing the biggest foraging mistakes people often make.
If you’re an off-gridder or simply have a love for nature and self-reliance, then this week’s show is for you!

Note from Angel4Light:

I am proud to share this important information and I have to tell you that even though I have a garden, I still partake of the many blessins growing wild.

You possibly may need this information in any type of emergency situations. Should weather prevent you from getting your normal consumables.

I personally like to be self sufficient. Relying on others for survival is why so many people in the world suffer from hunger.

People have been drawn to the Cities for reasons: it was designed to disconnect them from the land and make them dependant on Big Brother. It is called EnSlavement no matter how you look at it.

When you can grow your own produce or know what is good to graze on in the wild, you have the upper hand and can pretty much toss the tatas to big brother who wants to rule every little piece of your life.


Tata for Big Brother

Not only is much of the food growing wild healthier, much if it has healing qualities that you need to know.

Put down that remote control, turn off TV and turn on to reading, researching and get your hands into the soil, connect with our Mother Earth and find health and riches that far surpass money. You can’t eat money, but food is tradeable, and a far more valuable commodity than material wealth.

If you live in the City, don’t use the City Water on you or your plants, it is highly contaminated and carcinogenic. Get a good filter or distill your water, it is easer than you know.

If you live in a community that wants to come together and pitch in to drill a deep well. A dowser should be able to find the water source.

I will be putting up more off-the-Grid stuff that will help you in the coming times.

You can grow in containers inside your homes, some people have converted a second bathroom to do just that.

Just know that you do not have to eat the toxic GMO being pushed out to kill off Americans and Canadians. If HFCS is in anything, don’t buy it. If soy is in anything, don’t buy it. 99% of all Soy is GMO. Corn fed meat, dont buy it.

I am vegetarian most of the time, but will eat local grass fed beef from local farmers. I want to know where my food is coming from.

I just harvested some Bull Thissel and it is delicious. (Stalk taste better than celery)

I consume Milk Thissel regularly, (made into a powder and put into capsules).

BTW: Pine needles make a tasty tea.

Start your journey into the Wild and you will be amazed.

Be blessed
