Eating plants gathered from the wild... in New York City
This past Sunday, SciAm's Steve Mirsky
was part of a group led by ethnobotanist Nat Bletter
(holding the apple-picking stick) that searched for edible plants in New York City's Central Park.
After dining on wild vegetation, Steve and Nat chatted about ethnobotany.
You can hear the conversation on the September 19 episode of Science Talk
, the weekly podcast of Scientific American
The views expressed are those of the author(s) and are not necessarily those of Scientific American.
