1.0 out of 5 stars whiskey tango fox July 2, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Holy garbanzo beans batman. After 15 minutes of the two women dithering I had to turn it off. I had high expectations for this movie and the topic to be covered. When I watched the two of them just describe hemlock instead of showing it i knew i would be better off on my own with an Army field manual (they have pictures). If you can stomach to watch more than 20 minutes of these ladies you're up for sainthood. They seem way to flighty to ask for the time of day let alone what is poison and what is edible. Spoiler Alert: this movie is a waste of money.

1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of money December 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I wish I could be kind and encouraging to the ladies who put this DVD together. They had a good idea, and marketed it well, but they should have hired professionals to film, direct, edit, and assemble it. The DVD is so poorly done that it is truly annoying to keep watching. And it is so far off its title claim of "Wild Edible Plants: The Ultimate Guide to Identifying and Harvesting Wild Food" that it is misleading in the extreme. One of the reviewers said that it only included 13 plants. I didn't even want to watch it again to check that fact. I hate to "flame" anything, but buyer beware! Of the dozen DVDs I own on wild edibles, this is the absolute worst. I wouldn't even give it away.

A far better DVD on edible wild plants, professionally done, is The Forager's Harvest DVD: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants It shows all 32 plants in one of the best edible wild plant books ever written: The Forager's Harvest: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants The DVD by Brian Pierce takes you on a field trip with author Sam Thayer, who knows the plants intimately, as he has eaten each one of the 32 species at least 50 times. There's a great trailer on YouTube that gives you a good idea of the quality of this DVD. Check it out: <...>

3.0 out of 5 stars Overall good info for beginner December 21, 2010
By Taylor
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I hate to be the first one to review this video because I sense that they worked really hard to make it happen. So here is what I came up with after watching it.
If you like nature, eating raw, health, and you wonder about how to start on eating wild edible plants, this would be a good start.
If you have no clue on how to start recognizing some wild plants, again, this is a great start too.
If you are a person that looks at Mother Nature as a sort of "god" or religion, there's a lady (Katrina Blair from speaking from her heart about such beliefs.
If you want an energetic person explaining about some wild plants and give background stories regarding the plants, you will like the interesting stories from Julie.
However if you have much information already on wild plants, I'd say, don't buy it, unless you don't mind spending money. This is for beginners. You can always buy it for your friends.:)
If you struggle a bit with visual and don't like constant flickering lighting, you might feel irritated with the video, as far as visual goes. (I was, it hurt my eyes, but not enough to stop the video).
If you don't mind having to put the sound up sometimes and down at other times, then you will be fine with this video as well.
If you are ok with an overall obviously low budget DVD, you'll like it as well.

I wasn't sure about the video, but of course for the price I expected something more. Not necessarily more content (since I was looking for something that can teach me and is visual, I learn best watching), but first I'm not a fanatic of nature, I have great respect for what I believe God gave us through nature, but I don't worship nature. I had a hard time with the constant "flickering" of the lighting in the video.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great DVD May 9, 2011
By Laura
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Wow what a great DVD! Thank you for creating it. I went out and found anise, mallow, wild mustard, sow thistle, miner's lettuce, plantain, and wild onion. All on my property. I also have pine trees, and though it wasn't featured, I discovered mint growing near my creek. It inspired me to do more research, and I have since also found milk thistle and bluedicks. Native Californians used to eat the corms of bluedicks. This is a great starting point for anyone interesting in learning more about wild foods!

I love doing that plantain test by the way. Thanks again for a great DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational and Entertaining June 12, 2011
I loved this DVD. It did exactly what it said on the cover - it educated and entertained. I have some knowledge of plants but I still learned things about some of these that I didn't already know, especially when it came to specifics of identification and how to use the plants. An excellent beginners guide, it was very easy to understand. I was a bit concerned that since I live in the UK I wouldn't find any of the plants discussed here but they were true to their word and used plants that were not limited to the USA. I hope these lovely young ladies decide to make some more DVD's :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars This DVD changed the way I saw things! May 2, 2011
Wild Edible Pants opened my eyes to the world of raw food but for me it was all encompassing. I had a strong emotional and spritual reaction to it, I also giggled ALOT. Julie is so authentic with her approach and is great at revealing the 'Big Picture'. This DVD has almost enchanting insights into the world of wild edible food, is filled with humor and features an almost magickal guest that makes Wild Edible Plants not only informative but uplifting!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars good starting point
Good starting point. More will be needed. I also recommend learning regional wild plants in your area as some of the plants showcased here don't grow near me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too strong on entertainment vs enlightened information
While entertaining elements can move along an education video, it was used to compensate for limited enlightening information. In short, it was too long for the message.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible
This is one of the worst films ever produced. If done by an 8th grader I would have given her a D for effort. Do not waste your money or time on this.
