A Handbook of Scotland's Wild Harvests
From experts at the Scottish Wild Harvests Association, together with the team who brought us Handbook of Scotland's Trees, comes this indispensable guide to sustainable, responsible harvesting and use of our natural bounty, from its most trusted custodians.
This inspirational guide is packed with invaluable know-how on Scotland’s wild harvest, covering what, where, when and how you can use your bounty in sustainable ways – from the most useful and widespread of species to the less well-known, and from leaves and berries to saps, seeds, seaweeds, mosses and wood. Learn how to begin or extend a repertoire of wild foods and materials that can be used as dyes, remedies and around the home. Complete with recipes (from nettle haggis to elderflower cordial) and practical advice on home and garden uses.
"A Handbook of Scotland’s Wild Harvests goes beyond the edible, with chapters devoted to firewood, medicine and 'bringing the wild back home', which covers dyes, basketry, green woodworking, seed collecting and other useful species. You don’t have to read many pages before you’ll be filled with the urge to go out exploring to see what you can find." The Scotsman
