Wild Plant Culture (EPUB)

A Guide to Restoring Edible and Medicinal Native Plant Communities

Integrating 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.

Blending science, practice, and traditional knowledge, it makes bold connections that are actionable, innovative, and ecologically imperative for repairing both degraded landscapes and our broken cultural relationship with nature. Coverage includes:

  • Techniques for observing the land's existing and potential plant communities
  • Baseline monitoring, site preparation, seeding, planting, and maintaining restored areas
  • Botanical fieldwork restoration stories and examples
  • Detailed profiles of 209 native plants and their uses.

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.
