An inspirational journey around the world, looking at Stephen's top 80 perennial leafy green vegetables. There are stories of the wild foraging traditions of indigenous people in all continents: from the Maori of New Zealand, the rich traditions of the Mediterranean people, high altitude foods with the Sherpas in the Himalayas and the wild aquatic plant that sustained Native American tribes with a myriad of foodstuffs and other products. Each vegetable is given a thorough description, including its traditions, stories, cultivation, where to source seeds and plants, and how to propagate it. There is also a sprinkling of recipes inspired by local gastronomy. This adventure in climate-friendly vegetable growing is interesting to both traditional vegetable and ornamental gardeners, as well as people interested in permaculture, forest gardening, foraging and ethnobotany. Foreword by Alys Fowler.
