The Forager’s Treasury – the essential guide to finding and using wild plants in Aotearoa.

In the urban and rural wildernesses, there is an abundance of food just waiting to be discovered, if only you know what to look for.

Foraged food is healthy, economical and sustainable, but the best part is the fun you will have finding it. This book is guaranteed to make you look at the plants around you in a different light.

The Forager’s Treasury features profiles of many edible plants commonly found in New Zealand; advice on where to find them, how to harvest them and how best to use them; and over 60 delicious food recipes as well as more than 30 recipes for medicine, natural dyes, perfumes and skin care.

    AN AMAZING BOOK! This book got me into foraging and going into the wilderness just to get ingredients for a salad! It sparked a full love of new zealand wildlife and biology inside me, and inspired me to try a whole new world of plant uses I never even knew about. Incredible book, must get for passionate plant persuers!
