Foraging Wild Edible Plants with Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen



Easily learn to identify wild edible plants as you stroll through the East Texas woods with Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen. Mark made foraging for wild edible plants fun and educational. In less than 300 yards he identified, explained the benefits and shared how to prepare twenty-three wild medicinal plants. I hope you enjoy the experience as much as I did. He identified Cleaver/Velcro Weed, Yaupon Holley, American Holly, Crepis/Japanese Hawksbeard, Jerusalem Cherry, Wood Sorrel, Turkey Tail Mushroom, Do Berry, Bay Tree: Sweet Bay, Loral Bay, Loyal Cherry Bay, Cudweed, Carolina Geranium, Pony Foot, Riesky Mushroom, Pine Tree, Dwarf Palm Meadow, Artist Conk Mushroom, Sweet Gun Tree, Old Man's Beard Lichen, Red Bud Tree, Tooth Ache Tree/Prickly Ash, Texas Rattan Vine, Chickweed and Lyre Leaf Sage.
