What if that pesky weed that you have been trying to eradicate from your garden was not just edible, but also tasty, high in nutrients, and a great cure for your mother’s joint pains?
What if the vine you are planning to chop off to make way for a vegetable patch itself yields a forgotten vegetable that you can’t get for any amount of money?
What if there is food – healthy, varied, delicious, zero carbon-footprint, and totally free, all around your neighbourhood that you could gather, if only you knew it was there?
1) To identify wild vegetables growing in your area
2) To gather wild vegetables in a sustainable manner
3) About the nutritious and health giving properties of wild vegetables in your locality
4) To cook a healthy, indigenous style meal with wild veggies and millets
