Eric and Wendy Brown spent a year actively foraging around their suburban home, where they had lived for more than a decade. In the very short few months they spent as active foragers, they learned more about their surrounding area and the animals and plants that were co-habitants. In the process they developed a greater sense of what it means to really live in a place.
Eric and Wendy Brown have been studying wild edibles for many years. Until 2005 their family was living the American Dream, complete with credit card debt, car payments and two mortgages. Concerns about the environment, Peak Oil, and the economy combined with a growing desire to live a more self-sufficient life caused them to reevaluate and redesign their lives. They live in southern Maine with their three daughters and a menagerie of animal companions.
