Foraging Friday: Survival-Skills 101

The latest from author and forager, Max Gordon

Here is your weekly dose of Foraging Friday, a list of what I’m pondering and exploring. I hope you’ve had a great week! Thank you for supporting my work.

Check out our year-long survival course now, and an online course for practioniers, teachers, and homeschooling leaders.

What i’m researching

The following is an excerpt from a 2005 paper called “An ecological and historical review of bracken (Pteridium esculentum) in New Zealand, and its cultural significance”.

“New Zealand bracken (Pteridium esculentum) belongs to a group of closely related fern species of near global extent. Pteridium species worldwide are aggressive, highly productive, seral plants, functionally more akin to shrubs than ferns…

Although Maori relied on bracken rhizome starch as a major element of their diet, food-quality rhizomes were obtained only on deep, moderately fertile soils. The dominance of bracken over very large areas was mainly a result of burning to create open landscapes for access and ease of travel.” –

Quote i’m pondering

““We truly are a species with amnesia. We have forgotten a very important part of our story.” ― Graham Hancock

Videos i’m creating: Papaya!


Have a wonderful weekend, all.
