Permies,

I've tried unsuccessfully for a very, very long time to get a high-quality recording of one of my wild edibles walks. Filming a group workshop outside presents a heap of difficulties for a camera, microphone, and videographer. After a decade of failed attempts, I finally got what I wanted! :-)

I invite you to come on a virtual forage with me on YouTube.

Great video Sergei... Thank you for the herb walk, I had fun and was a good review with some new tidbits I had not known or had forgotten.

Very educational video, Sergei.
Excellent audio and video quality. Would like to know how you solved the microphone caveat.
Looking forward to learning more from you.
Best to you,
Kenn Alan

Thank you Sergio for a helpful video I've saved it to play back when I need to check any of the plants out.

I too would like to know how you solved the microphone problem, I'd love to get it right for when I am out - I talk as I walk to remind me which area I am finding my plant - then I can return again later, often I can't hear properly what I have said.

Thanks again for a great video

Well done!  I particularly enjoyed your initial story about how this all got started - what doesn't kill us make us stronger, and hopefully gives us better judgement! Which is why it's good for everyone to gradually test and learn about the wild foods around us, so that we already have the knowledge base when we need it.

I've been doing a variation of this for sometime - I characterize "weeds" on my property as, "things chickens eat vs things chicken's don't eat". I've noticed that when I first introduce a new weed to them, they often only eat small quantities of it. Then after several days, they descend on the same weed with enthusiasm. If they're smart enough to eat a "small quantity of a new food", we humans should be also.

I absolutely LOVE this! The meristematic piece is something I never knew about, and I love how you note what the edibles are good for. That pine pollen part was amazing! Who knew?
