We LOVED it. Now as I walk in my neighborhood I am noticing all the FREE FOOD growing there. I purchase the cookbook and can't wait to try some of the recipes. I already used the garlic we found in my curry stew. It was DELICIOUS. CAN'T WAIT TO GO AGAIN!

Nice three hour tour in Danbury, CT. We are excited to explore some local parks soon. Wildman Steve Brill and daughter make a walk in the park educational and enjoyable.

"Wildman" Steve Brill puts his heart and soul into his informative, entertaining, and delicious 4-hour foraging tours. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and has passed his passion along to his teenage daughter, Violet, who assisted with the tour. We went in November when, to the uninformed eye, the land looks pretty inactive, but we stuffed our bags with edible--and medicinal--leaves and roots (wild carrots and parsnips!),in Marine Park, Brooklyn. I would highly recommend his tour to people of all ages who are looking to connect with nature in a unique, fascinating way.

About "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.
