"Dandelion Hunter" Internet Book Party with author Rebecca Lerner
Tuesday, April 2, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Reading / Q&A with author of Dandelion Hunter: Foraging the Urban Wilderness, Rebecca Lerner. In this engaging and eye-opening read, forager-journalist Becky Lerner sets out on a quest to find her inner hunter-gatherer in the city of Portland, Oregon. After a disheartening week trying to live off wild plants from the streets and parks near her home, she learns the ways of the first people who lived there and, along with a quirky cast of characters, discovers an array of useful wild plants hiding in plain sight. As she harvests them for food, medicine, and just-in-case apocalypse insurance, Lerner delves into anthropology, urban ecology and sustainability, and finds herself looking at Nature in a very different way.
