Summary
This book takes us on an original and inspiring adventure around the temperate world, introducing us to the author's top 80 perennial leafy green vegetables. We are taken to underground gardens in Tokyo, beach gardens in the UK, and traditional roof gardens in the Norwegian mountains. There are stories of the wild foraging traditions of indigenous people in all continents: from the Sami people of northern Norway to the Maori of New Zealand, the rich food traditions of the Mediterranean peoples, the high altitude food plants of the Sherpas in the Himalayas, wild mountain vegetables in Japan and Korea, and the wild aquatic plant that sustained Native American tribes with a myriad of foodstuffs and other products
