I have recently gotten interested in what's out there in nature to be eaten and how might survive on that more and on packed in foods less, when I go out into the wilderness. Also interested in what can be used without doing damage, right here. For instance, have started drinking douglas fir and yerba Buena teas and love them. I also make nettle pesto and harvest local bay leaves for cooking. And of course blackberries, fennel and the misc. plum trees dropping their fruit on local sidewalks.
I'm a middle-aged, divorced teacher and father of two teenagers who live with me. I am an avid backpacker and nature enthusiast and have been since my high school days.
