For anyone who is interested in bush tucker and other wild edible plants, I recently created a group on Facebook called Wild Green Smoothies. The group is a place for people to share knowledge about wild plants, including wild greens, wild fruit and other wild edibles. It’s also a place to share healthy raw recipes using wild ingredients, especially (but not limited to) green smoothie recipes.
In case anyone is wondering, green smoothies are blended leafy greens with fruit. The taste of the fruit dominates the greens, so if made with the right ingredients, green smoothies are delicious and offer tremendous health benefits.
Whether or not you consume green smoothies, the Wild Green Smoothies group is a great place to share knowledge and healthy raw recipes as well as to connect with like-minded people.September 2, 2011 at 12:14 am #507230

ps Kemi posted this today for those in Melbourne…
I will be at ‘Ceres’ in Melbourne tomorrow from 10am -11am giving out free samples from my Spring Fling Plan! The sun will be shining, live music will be playing and there will be raw love in the air. Come say helloSeptember 2, 2011 at 12:22 am #507232
Thanks for the link, Steve.
I also wanted to mention that the group is not just for foragers. It’s also for people who have (or want to start) bush food gardens or want to grow some wild species of fruit, for example. (Wild food tends to be much higher in vitamins and minerals than conventional produce).September 3, 2011 at 11:25 pm #507233
Interesting group. I liked your post about pigface… I have some growing at home but had no idea you could eat it. Will add some to salads.September 4, 2011 at 5:16 pm #507234
Have just sent a request! Exactly the sort of thing I love about FB!!September 6, 2011 at 12:15 am #507235
Nice to have you join, Anja.
There are so many edible plants around us — it’s just that most people don’t know which ones are useful and which ones aren’t. That’s why I started the group. Wild edibles are so much fresher and healthier than anything you can buy in a supermarket and are much better for the environment (e.g. no need to transport over long distances or spray with chemicals). There is also a lot more variety with wild plants; in the supermarket you just have a few species to choose from, while in nature there are thousands.September 6, 2011 at 1:03 am #507236
Thanks Alice! Am loving the page already and I posted on my wlal about it and I think a couple of other friends have also sent requests 🙂
