Hi Folks!

I am very excited to announce the release of The Northwest Forager’s Pocket Guide to Wild Edible Plants! This true pocket-sized guide (Measuring 3.5″ x 5″) features 26 of the Pacific Northwest’s most common and easy to identify edible plants as well as 5 hazardous look-alikes. It’s convenient size and easy-to-use format make this the ideal field guide to take with you in all your northwest adventures! Never go hiking, camping or hunting again without being prepared to explore the wild flavors of nature’s produce.

How to Use this Guide

The contents have been divided into three categories (Leafy Vegetables, Root Vegetables, Fruit Berries). The plants in each category have been arranged according to seasonal availability. There are two pages per plant. The 1st displays the plant in its natural growing environment and lists information such as its scientific name, growing habitat, as well as when and what parts to use. The 2nd notes basic info such as history, preparation, and nutritional value. It also displays specific edible parts as well as identifiable features. If a plant has a common poisonous look-alike, it will be referenced in the back of the guide.
