There is food within 3 metres of your front door: this book will teach you how to open your 'plant eyes'.
Diego Bonetto grew up on a dairy farm in northern Italy when it was still common practice to collect the wild produce of the land. He moved to Australia in the mid-90s and spent years working in orchards and garden centres, where he realised how rare his foraging knowledge was - and how much the people around him longed to rekindle their untapped connection to nature. He now runs foraging workshops that teach participants how to engage with delicious wild food while starting conversations around belonging, sustainability and agency. He has collaborated with chefs, herbalists, environmentalists and cultural workers; he is also an artist passionate about using his practice to restore botanical literacy to communities. Diego has been featured by Marie Claire, GQ Australia, Lonely Planet, The Sydney Morning Herald, ABC and SBS, among other media outlets.
