Ever wished you knew if you had plants in your backyard that you could actually eat - plants that might even be good for you, save you money grocery shopping, heal you, provide you with nutrient density and more?
Or maybe you just want to know how to survive in the wilderness for a few days on your own.
The fact is, if you know what to look for, you can find a wealth of edible and medicinal plants all around you. You just need to know where to look, and which plants to avoid so that you don't poison yourself.
Not only that, but you can also survive in the wilderness with just a few primitive skills - fewer than you'd think.
In this podcast, I interview Tim Corcoran, an expert on wilderness survival, permaculture, edible wild plants and more.
Tim is co-director of Twin Eagles Wilderness School · Nature & Wilderness Survival School, an organization he co-founded with his wife, Jeannine Tidwell in Sandpoint, Idaho (located about an hour from my house.
Tim is a certified Wilderness First Responder, a graduate of the Kamana Naturalist Training Program, and a graduate of the Vermont Wilderness School’s five-year Apprenticeship Program.
