Wild Foods for Spring Foraging that are Free and Easy to Find!
Some see a lawn, I see nature’s salad bowl! Spring has arrived in Western North Carolina and across much of the world. There's not a lot of green on the trees yet, but there is a lot of green on the ground and a lot of that green is edible!
Rob Greenfield walks through his neighborhood and shares six spring plants that you can easily identify and forage for some delicious and nutritious springtime food.
You can eat these greens fresh from the yard. You can take them home, put them in a salad. You can sauté them. You can save them for later by freezing or drying them. Whatever you do, just make sure you get out foraging. Rob likes to say eat one wild thing a day, something he’s learned from many of his foraging friends.
