Two foraging-related books will be available in Fall of 2012 from our sponsor partner Storey Publishing.
More and more non-native species are invading our local environments, and there is a real need to manage the populations of these invasive animals. In Eating Aliens, Jackson Landers takes readers on a wild ride as he hunts such creatures as European green crabs, Chinese mystery snails, and even the seemingly acceptable tilapia. With his personal narrative driving the story, the hunt becomes more than one man’s desire to catch and kill prey and evolves into a very real solution to restoring the eco-balance across the western hemisphere. This Storey Publishing title is scheduled for release in Fall of 2012. Learn more at Storey’s website.
A collection of 60 recipes connected by the author’s text about his vision for living sustainably and foraging in the natural environment for ingredients that expand the boundaries of preserved flavors and foods. For the more adventurous and sophisticated palate, this book offers a view into a world of wild flavors through both recipes and narrative. This Storey Publishing title is scheduled for release in Fall of 2012. Learn more at Storey’s website.

Foraging Expert Blanche Derby has two books available. Both books deal with her personal stories of edible wild and cultivated plants. Every essay has a whimsical pen-and-ink illustration (done by the author) and a recipe for each plant. These books are NOT field guides. Books can be purchased from Blanche when she leads walks or from her website.
