Oak Notebook, Its Past and Present Uses as Food, Medicine and Folklore - Robin Harford

€ 10,95

For over a decade I have experimented and explored the wild world of plants, and how our ancestors used them as food and medicine.

I’ve spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even going so far as to be nomadic for over a year.

During this time I followed the seasons, and plants around the highways and byways of these Isles.

THE OAK NOTEBOOK covers its past and present uses as food and medicine. Including the folklore, recipes, nutrition and cautions.

I have written this series to help you go deeper into the wild world of plants.
