We are going to meet at King's Books to discuss Rebecca Lerner's "Dandelion Hunter: Foraging the Urban Wilderness," which is available both in paperback and ebook form at King's Bookstore: http://www.kingsbookstore.com/book/9780762780624
This is the fourth meeting of the Food Justice Book Club, where we've read books such as "A Place at the Table," and "Rebuilding the Foodshed: How to Create Local, Sustainable, and Secure Food Systems."
"Dandelion Hunter" is described as follows:
"A hip, young Portland writer tells of her quest to become proficient at survival off the grid in this entertaining story of adventure and discovery. Her foray into foraging covers four hot-selling subjects—food, nature, survival, and sustainability."
We will be using this book club discussion to whet our appetite for the following Sunday's Wild Glean/Urban Foray, where we will be taking to the streets to find the medicinal and delectable edibles right in our own urban backyards. That will be listed as a separate event, so stay tuned!
NOTE: Do not feel guilty if you don't finish the entire book! We'd still love to see you, and to engage in discussion about urban foraging!
