      Great book, I have been looking for something like this to identify weeds in my garden & local area. I make smoothies everyday & wanted extra greens. What better than free greens? Very informative book & great reference for the future.

        Enjoy your weeds

        Comments about The Weed Forager's Handbook:

        A friend lent me this. I wanted more of this book so I bought it.
        Finally a positive book about some of the plants that grow around us. It's fascinating and witty and has some tasty ways to use some very familiar plants. We've tried most and some have become regulars in our kitchen.
        This is not how to hate weeds but how to enjoy them instead. Nice.

        Well illustrated, makes weed ID easy. Handy pocket size. I found it covered very few weeds, and only common ones.

          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.
