Re: [pfaf] How to know what you can eat?
- Why don't you talk to some of the older folks in and around your area? I learned young from my grandparents what plants were edible and which were not. There must be someone who can help you to learn the plants in your region of the world.

I'm deeply impressed by the amount of information no edible plants in
How is this information found? Is it old knowledge retained with care,
or is there a form of analyses used, or is there a way to figure it out
when you come accross a plant?
I don't suppose everything that is known on sites like pfaf.org could
have been by volunteers tasting -- although that could explain why so
few people have heard about permaculture ;-)
I'm mainly interested in learning how I can verify edibility without books
or databases to guide me, and if possible to add to the knowledge in
