Welcome! Welcome! I'm so glad people like you write awesome books for people like me to read and nerd over I believe I may love wild plants more than I love domesticated!

Hi! Thrilled about eating wild plants. Husband calls me cracked. Mallow, pigweed (amaranth) and lambs quarters grow in abundance here. I am thinking of starting to eat quack grass roots. Digging them out of the garden lots. I understand a bread was made with these during war times in Europe. Curious about your thoughts on that.

Have been wanting to learn more about this topic for ages! Timely post - I have a rock mulched area in our front yard that produces different wild plants every year. Noticed that the non-native filaree smells just like carrots! Anything with a taproot loves our northern Nevada climate so mallow is another volunteer...

Wow, I am so glad now I shared Kevin's books with Permies! Been following his blog for at least 3 years now!

If eBooks are part of the giveaway, that is fine by me, loving my Kindle books as of late!

So I ran the winner picker app in the forum software and we have 2 winners.

Heather Ward
and
Pavel Mikoloski

Congratulations Heather and Pavel!

I sent you an email to ask for the email address of the person that first referred you to Permies.com. That person (if qualified) will also get a copy of the book and a permies care package.

Hi Heather Ward and Pavel Mikoloski once you've read the book why don't you write a review for permies.com so we can all know your impressions on the book.
write your review following the acorns scale we have here on permies.com, starting you review writing: I give this book ... out 10 acorns, intending you give the book on a scale from 0 to 10 a number of acorns for what you think of it. You can know more of the acorn scale at this link:
acorns scale for books

write your review of the book at this link:
