He is passionate about natural beekeeping and runs the Urban Hive, a Melbourne based business that builds and sells Top Bar and Warre bee hives and removes bee swarms. He is a fountain of knowledge on beekeeping and bees in general! Read more about Martin and the excellent work he’s doing at The Urban Hive.
I had a chance to go for an edible weed foray with my friends Adam and Annie from Eat That Weed.
It was early autumn here in south eastern Australia and quite dry but we still managed to find some of their favourite edible weeds including dandelion, purslane and sow thistle.
They shared with the Deep Living Project why weeds are important to pay attention to and how to broaden your diet by including some super charged edible weeds jammed full of nutrients to keep you healthy!
This is a great place to start if you're new to edible weeds and a great way to learn to see your landscape as a foodscape.
Adam and Annie have written an incredible book featured on the video called "The Weed Foragers Handbook" that you can find at http://www.eatthatweed.com
