Eating the North Country: wild food foraging

Listen to this story
For nearly 30 years, Jane Desotelle has been collecting herbs in the Adirondacks for teas and sometimes an entire meal of found food. Desotelle owns "Underwood Herbs" and also runs a botanical sanctuary. She's a gardener, artist and plant expert. She recently led a plant walk for TAUNY on Falls Island in downtown Canton. Todd Moe tagged along to learn more about weeds that are good for you. Reminder: It's often illegal to pick wild plants on public lands, and always ask permission before venturing onto someone else's property.
