You don't have to live in the country to use wild plants. Many herbs grow in abandoned lots, parks, the cracks in sidewalks, and along roads.
* Locate and identify wild herbs of abandoned lots, parks and sidewalks.
* Explore botanical, historical and magical lore from modern and ancient herbal sources.
* Freeze, store and preserve the plants you find.
* Try out and use wonderful recipes for breads, teas, salads and cosmetics.
"An absolutely delightful book that focuses on 34 common wild plants of the city, including their uses for food and medicine, and a great deal on their lore. The illustrations are excellent -- which is rare in herbals -- a perfect introduction to local plants for city friends." --Organic Gardening
