Foraging and Planting Wild Food!
Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path”
Would you like to learn some high-calorie and high-nutrition value plants you can plant in your own yard so that they can grow in a semi-wild environment?
Join Sam Coffman and Mark Vorderbruggen (Meriwether) in tonight’s podcast as they discuss wild foods that have enough nutritional value to sustain you during times when there may not be any other source of food, or at any time that you wish to eat a more nutritionally dense diet.

Imagine yourself in a forest where everything around you is either food or medicine! you have to look carefully, but if you do, you find fruits and nuts swelling with ripeness on the branches all around you! Because it’s so well hidden, “Zombie hoards” pass by without noticing. Pears, apples, persimmons, plums, almonds, and peaches hang from the branches. Shrubs fill the gaps in the forest canopy with raspberries, blueberries, currants, hazelnuts, wild edibles, herbs, and perennial vegetables thickly cover the ground. You can use all of these plants for food or medicine too. Some attract beneficial insects, birds, and butterflies. Others act as soil builders, or simply help keep out weeds. Here and there vines climb on trees, shrubs, or arbors with fruit hanging through the foliage—hardy kiwis, grapes, and passionflower fruits. In sunnier glades large stands of Jerusalem artichokes grow together with groundnut vines. These plants support one another as they store energy in their roots for later harvest and winter storage. It’s a magical garden of Eden, where no one maintains it, no one digs or rototills the soil, and everything grows in abundance year after year! Join GoatHollow, and his guest “Athatcher85″ this Wednesday for a discussion on how Preppers can start their own “Edible Forest Garden”
Prepping for something unexpected like being stranded in grid-lock a long ways from home requires planning. What would you want in your Grab-and-Go kit for unforeseen emergencies and how would you survive if your food supply ran out? Join Hedy Hammond, Off Grid Prepper’s new co-host, and me as we discuss Grab-and-Go Kit must- haves and tips on gathering wild edible and medicinal plants.
