Reading: Rebecca Lerner at Powell’s

April 18, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

Forager-journalist Rebecca Lerner delves into her Portland-based quest to learn about edible and medicinal wild plants in her new book, Dandelion Hunter: Foraging the Urban Wilderness. She will read from her new book at Powell’s; sponsored by Edible Portland.

“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.”
