"Wildman" Steve Brill

"The whole world is my garden," author and naturalist Steve Brill told the Los Angeles Times in 2012—and he means that literally. For more than 32 years, the naturalist has been taking groups into the relative wilds of New York City and beyond to find treasures—edible ones—in parks and other public areas. From identifying mushrooms to knowing where medicinal plants are likely to grow, he helps tour-goers open their eyes to wild foods that have always been right in front of them and even provides recipes to help them make the most of their finds.

Good guy. We learned a lot about the edible weeds of Long Island, plus we got some cool history stories.

Steve and his daughter Violet were awesome! They were very knowledgeable and funny. We learned a ton and sampled many wild foods, many of which happen to grow right in our backyard.
