THE WEED FORAGERS HANDBOOK by Adam Grubb & Ann Rasor-Rowland. A pocket sized Australian Guide to Edible and Medicinal Weeds. Hey! That's my dinner you're standing on! Food for Free, you dont have to water it or tend it, just go for a walk and pick it. It's probably growing in your garden already, but you keep pulling it out and trying to force other plants to grow instead. Get the book, build the confidence, and eat the weeds; they're tasty and good for you. Some are used like herbs, to add flavour. Others are leafy greens like spinach or salad greens. Most of them you'll recognise, and you'll wonder why you've never picked them before.

So step out into the world of our least admired botanical companions. Peel back the layers of prejudice, and discover the finer side of the plants we call weeds.
Learn how to distinguish a tasty sandwich-filler from its dangerous look-alike, which weeds are among the most nutritious vegetables ever tested, and how you cook with delicious nettles without fear of being stung ...It will forever change your concept of where to go for food.

There are even a few recipes to help you get the hang of cooking with weeds!

From the Foreword by Costa Georgiadis: "...In other words, if you eat, then this book is an essential companion."
