Hi, I'm Robin Harford, bestselling author of Edible and Medicinal Wild Plants of Britain and Ireland and one of Britain's foremost foraging teachers.

In this unique foraging guide, I reveal this ancient plant's past and present uses as food and medicine, including folklore, recipes, nutrition and safety.

A photo identification guide and a simple botanical profile are included to help make identification easy.

Format: PDF and Kindle

The scope, scholarship, references and wonderful photographs make these notebooks a brilliant resource and a source of constant pleasure. Thank you. – Lynne Friedli

For over fifteen years, I have experimented with and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.

I’ve spent countless hours digging through scientific papers and reading hundreds of books.

I even went so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time, I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.

I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone.

I hope you enjoy it.
