Re: [Wild-Foodies-of-Philly] Study Group / Tour leader training

The program referenced below was very interesting.  Book is by Jo Robinson, the most interesting information concerned new research showing that phytonutrients (which are produced by plants in order to protect themselves from UV rays and insects and other attackers) are (as we all know/suspect) diminished in fruits & veggies that are store-bought.  But, of course, we all buy produce.   So, if you stress your produce after washing it by tearing or cutting it into pieces, you thereby *increase* its phytonutrient content---the plant is still alive in a significant sense.  Then store it in the fridge, but consume within a day or two.

 A note to all:  WHYY Radio Terry
 Gross' program today at 3Pm and 7 PM (the latter part of it,
 as I understand it) will feature a book recommending that we
 "eat wild" as "our prehistoric ancestors" did.  This
 probably means meat, as well----though wild foodies have
 been focusing primarily on veggies (excepting a few
 insects).  May be interesting.

  Hi Lynn,
  
  I am very happy to see this email as I was afraid I
  had missed out on the training.  I am very interested
  in doing this with you and would also like to be part of
 the
  study group.   I am about to leave for a few days
  in Maine - I am taking a Back to the Land Workshop on
  cooking foraged foods - as they put it "merging the
  forest with the farm, eating traditional diets with
 seasonal
  food."   Am also planning to take the next
  Wild Edible Tour and cooking follow up next weekend.  
  
  
  
  I will be back next Tuesday, so, if we can, let's
  connect and set up time to get together after that.
  
  Best regards,
  Berdine

  Hi all:  First wanted to let you know that
  "tour guide training" is under way. 
  About 20 people expressed an interest and 10 are
  already scheduled for lessons.  The one-on-one
  tutoring is working great, and later we'll have group
  sessions, which will also be an opportunity to build
  community.   And it's all for
  free, except student­ guides promise
  to lead a free tour after the
  training.   If you are interested in the
  training, please contact me at [address removed]. 
  It's an important program to spread important
  information, although (just to be clear) you don't need
  special training to post a meetup.  We are all
  about community-based collaborative education.
  
  
  Meanwhile, we also need to form a Study
  Group.  We need to know more about wild
  edibles.  Some questions will be about
  identification.  But­, we also need to know
  how much we should eat of any given food.  For
  instance, some wild edibles are coagulants, like
  plantain.  How much should people eat, recognizing that
  some people need thinner blood, etc.?  Also,
  there's the oxalic acid issue.  How concerned
  should we be about that?  Then there's the mustard
  family and its trace amounts of cyanide.  Store bought
  food also has these concerns, but we're focusing on
  wild edibles. 
  
  
  So, please respond if you would like to join the Study
  Group and dig deeper into this subject.
  Lynn
