#WildFoodMap is a community-driven wild food and medicine plant identification and social mapping service. We’ve set out to provide a platform to locate sources of free food and medicine plants (native or not) living in the landscape sharing locations and related knowledge through social media interaction.
Responding to ever-growing interest of the foodists, herbalists, survivalists, conservationists, new-age-ists, chefs, bartenders, caterers, farmers, gardeners, producers, schools, collectives, community groups, alternative medicine practitioners and sustainability advocates #WildFoodMap will provide an online resource where people can engage by positively identifying wild plant species, learn about the plants uses and locate safe and clean gathering locations.
Why? We all know wild fennel is delicious with fish, dandelions make the best coffee, nettle is a super food, mallow is a digestive and plantain is a bush band-aid; BUT do we know where to collect them from the wild? #wildfoodmap will enable the collection, identification and conversations on wild food and medicine. Fostering connection, knowledge and appreciation of the wild resources around us all, with a few good recipes in the mix.
As always use the foragers rule of thumb... “IF IN DOUBT, GO WITHOUT”
The Wild Food Map and the information contained within the site should be treated as a guide only, the creators and developers took all possible care to provide the correct information available online and in textbooks. We do not accept any responsibility of misjudgements or misinterpretation of information resulting in anyone hurting or poisoning themselves acting under the assumption that this website is an extensive guide, please seek further advice and information on any matter related to the plants presented hereafter.
All species were present at the time of tagging. If for reasons of continuous suppression some of them are not found at a particular locationon subsequent visits, do come back, chances are that they will be back too. Weeds are resilient organisms adapting well to human interference.
