EdibleWildFood.com has grown "like a weed" since launching in August 2011 and this is all due to the fabulous people who have made this possible – you!
In today’s world there’s so much divisiveness; but next to a major disaster there is one thing that brings people together – food. Increasing numbers of people worldwide are making wild food choices! I’m honoured to be part of a global network of individuals who are wild food educators.
In February 2012, I started a free newsletter to help people learn more about wild edibles and it includes easy-to-make products that are inexpensive and effective. Thousands of people worldwide subscribe to Nutrition – Nature’s Way! If you want a free subscription please click here!
So who am I? My name is Karen Stephenson. I’m an expert wild food educator, chartered herbalist, author, professional writer/researcher, and a certified Master Naturalist (Lakehead University). My love for writing goes back to the early 1990’s. I earned an S.S.W. (High Honours with Distinction) in 1999 from Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology in Toronto, and I have completed more workshops and courses (including nutrition and additional herbal pharmacy) than space will allow. I volunteer for the Toronto Mycological Society and the York-Simcoe Naturalists.
My husband, Martin Eising, is the tech-guy who does all the behind-the-scenes work that has allowed EdibleWildFood.com to be the go-to site for wild edible information in many countries.
Bottom line, my main passion is teaching people about healthy eating by integrating wild food into their daily diet, even throughout the winter months!
