Wild edibles are seldom sourced by preppers, but a highly useful survival skill. It takes a significant amount of knowledge base and experience to be able to safely identify a plant for eating. So where do you start?
This week on the Next Generation Show, we share some of our experiences with wild berry picking, sources of information, and ways you can get out and add a level of depth to your next family outing.
Field guides and reference manuals are critical when foraging. Nature has a funny way of making edible and poisonous plants look similar. But if you’re hungry or lost or both, will you be able to tell the difference based on memory alone? The very food at your fingertips could be your demise if you don’t know the difference.
The best advice if you don’t know is to not tempt fate. But on the other hand, if you don’t take the time to learn the wild edible plants in your region, you eliminate that food source completely from your potential survival cash hiding in plain sight.
You can even take advantage of native plants to include in your landscaping as a secret garden of sorts. Wild garlic, wild onions, wild fruits and vegetables are all at your fingertips – if you know where to look. We’ll be sharing a few resources in chat and even more helpful tools to patrons!
Also, don’t miss out on our Pint-Sized Prepper Project for this week where we demonstrate a simple way to stay cool in the summer heat wave, and we update the homemade solar cooker project!
