Many of us have an image of foraging that involves tramping around the countryside, digging through hedgerows and maybe bringing a dog on board to sniff out truffles and the like. But, as our March Book of the Month demonstrates, it doesn’t have to be that way.
In The Urban Forager, Wross Lawrence gives expert advice on identifying and picking edible crops in urban spaces such as parks, cemeteries and waterways. The book also includes 32 vegetarian recipes made from foraged foods, original photography and illustrations, and expert information on tools, respectful foraging, and poisonous lookalikes. Reconnect with nature and make delicious new jams, desserts, pies and more with The Urban Forager.
The Urban Forager by Wross Lawrence is available from Hoxton Mini Press on 19th March 2020.
