Backyard Foraging with Brigitte Mars

Helpful remedies are at our fingertips! We would never be hungry if we knew what was abounding right in our own backyards. Brigitte Mars, an internationally renowned expert on foraging and the medicinal and nutritional properties of plants, laments that the average American recognizes more than a thousand logos and their associated products, but fewer than five plants or five birds. Supplementing the fascinating conversation about health and sustainability, Brigitte further demonstrates her encyclopedic knowledge by touring the grounds at Gaia’s headquarters, explaining the uses of plants found growing wild.
