A large number recognize the degree to which medicinal herbs and natural foods can contribute to our health, well being, and enjoyment of the feast and challenge of life. And a smaller but growing number of us realize that wild plants can be some of the strongest medicines, as well as contribute to some of the healthiest and tastiest meals. Unexpected Benefits There are more and deeper benefits to wildcrafting than simply finding high potency herbs or free and healthy food, including the effect of wildcrafting on us personally, on how we feel, and how we see the world. When wildcrafting, we are of necessity more aware, sniffing the air for signature scents, tasting flowers we find and the tips of new fir needles, scanning for the shapes and silhouettes of species we might hope to discover. In the process, we develop an increased intimacy with our own natural senses and abilities as well as with the natural world we are all inseparable members and components of. Before we have consumed a single bite or single dropper-full of our wild environs, we are immersed like seldom before in the features and flux of the elemental world, enriched by the experience of existing for however many awakened moments as a seeker and hunter, gatherer and guardian, participant in and celebrant of wildness again. Wild Sustenance, Wild Tonic Plant Healer Magazine contributors are as wildly diverse, robust, and impactful as the species they write about, each creating pieces that reflect their personal knowledge, experience, attitude and approach. From systematic clinicians to an intemperate street medic, each adds to the potion and flavor. The resulting collection constitutes a healing formula... and a substantive meal. Learn, practice, tend, feast, and enjoy!
