I just got word that Judith Larner Lowry has had a new book published and I am ordering it right now! It is titled California Foraging: 120 Wild and Flavorful Edibles from Evergreen Huckleberries to Wild Ginger.
The book, published by Timber Press, available widely, is announced by the publisher: “The diversity of California’s terrain and climate are a forager’s dream, with unique offerings from the coast, the mountains, the deserts, and everywhere in between. A passionate wild foods expert, Judith Larner Lowry shows you what to look for and how to gather it in a sustainable way.
California Foraging is a hardworking guide packed with detailed information and clear photography for the safe identification of more than 120 wild plants. It also features a seasonal guide for foraging year-round and collecting tips for sustainable harvesting.”
Timber Press has published other works that many of our gardening community would be interested in. Judith, of course, as many of you know, has been the proprietor of Larner Seeds, which specializes in California native plants and seeds, for the last 35 years. She’s a great writer and has published the wonderful Gardening with a Wild Heart from UC Press. She is also a prolific contributor to west coast gardening, nature and environmental magazines and journals.
I am looking forward to this book, as it is an important aspect of gardening that I think holds tremendous potential for our future.
