      This is a very useful book to help extend plant knowledge and to identify useful weeds. Some are excellent to use in Green Juices.

          Comments about The Weed Forager's Handbook:

          Like all printed identification guides, photos only give a rough idea of the actual plants. Get it wrong and you could end up sick or dead. You would need to be shown, live, by an expert. The writers run tours in Melbourne.
