Wild Plant Culture: A Guide to Restoring Edible and Medicinal Native Plant Communities

RECONNECT. RESTORE. RECIPROCATE. REPAIRING LANDSCAPES AND RECONNECTING US TO LOCAL WILD PLANT COMMUNITIES.

Intergrating restoration practices,, foraging, herbalism, rewilding, and permaculture, Wild Plant Culture is a comprehensive guide to the ecological restoration of native edible and medicinal plant communities in eastern North America, written by our own Jared Rosenbaum!

Blending science, practice, and traditional knowledge to repair both degraded landscapes and our broken cultural relationship with nature.

Both a practical guide and an evocative read that will transport you deep into the natural landscape, Wild Plant Culture is an essential toolkit for gardeners, farmers, and ecological restoration practitioners, highlighting the important role humans play in tending and mending native plant communities.
