Maui Forager Brings Wild Food Plants of Hawaii on Inter-island Book Tour with Message of One Wild Food Every Day. Sunny Savage, author of Wild Food Plants of Hawaii, offers guided wild food hikes, workshops and book signings throughout the month of November.
HAIKU, October 27 – Eating one wild food every day is the message of an historic wild food book tour happening around the Hawaiian Islands this November. Not since 1967, when Beachcomber’s Handbook by Euell Gibbons was published, has there been a resource for wild foods of Hawaii. In these long anticipated pages a new vision of health and sustainability are teased into the imagination. Events happening on the tour offer people around the islands the opportunity to learn first hand, with practical tools for successfully foraging in Hawaii.
“Wild foods are free, nutritious, and widely available…what’s not to love?” says Sunny Savage, acclaimed forager and author of Wild Food Plants of Hawaii. In her 2014 TedxMaui talk, Savage highlights how personal and planetary health are improved through eating just one wild food every day. You Can Eat That: The Gift of Wild Foods
Maui resident Renee Riley says, “Wild Food Plants of Hawaii is a life changing book. If you live in Hawaii or visit, get this book. You’ll look at roadside “weeds” with new appreciation – and knowledge of how to turn them into healthy additions to your meals.” The book can be found at locations around the Hawaiian Islands, and an electronic version was released today on iTunes.
