I loved the piece in Toast's newsletter about foraging around England, countrysides and urban parks alike. The company sells clothing and housewares, but occasionally share bits of stories and writing that are always nice to read. I thought it awesome that in a recent cookbook I read the author mentioned native "weeds" growing along city sidewalks and in empty lots as perfect additions to spring salads. I have heard about herbwalks in Utah, specifically up around bridal veil falls, little cottonwood and millcreek canyon areas. I think it would be fascinating, learning about the plants and herbs that grow wild in our area, and their edible and medicinal properties.
If you're interested in a local herbnwalk, check out utah herbwalker. He hasn't updated in quite a while, but I think as the seasons begin to warm and the rains begin to taper we may get an update soon.
Have you ever gone on an herb walk? Have you even heard of one? Would you add dandelion blossoms and leaves to your next salad?
