I created this project to help people identify and take advantage of the wild plants growing around their homes and in the wild.
The wild foods are healthier than anything you can buy in the supermarkets, they can be your lifeline in a crisis when food becomes scarce, they could be your medicine, or they could just be a way of life!
As a lifelong plant researcher, I dedicated my life to learn and take advantage of the plants surrounding us. I first started to study plants all the way back in 1987 when I joined the McGill University as a Biology student.
This knowledge that I gathered over the decades helped me immensely!
When I was diagnosed with MS, it was this knowledge that came to my help. I now manage my condition using mostly the plants and mushrooms near my home.
On Season 2 of the History Channel’s hit television show Alone it was plants that help me survive for 57 days in the wild, completely alone.
Why pay for what you can get for free? Nature gives us everything we need for free. In forests, clearings, even in your own backyard, there are plants that you probably don’t know and could help you just like they helped me.
