That’s where Tom Seymour comes in- in a matter of minutes Tom makes a landscape come alive with possibilities of edible opportunities. Once you start seeing it, you may never see the world around you the same again.

    Very nicely done, well explained. Makes me think that he would write a good book as well.

    Another beautifully made video. Tom’s soothing voice as he describes each edible plant just makes me want to wander to the water’s edge to look for them!

    Really enjoyed Tom & the information he shared.
    Decades ago, when first introduced the idea of eating wild plants, I thought it would be so difficult to do.
    Later I found after a proper, in person, introduction by someone in the know, the plants were not hard to recognize. Suggest that all the ‘nature hounds out there do get expert advice before consuming anything they find. Even some delicious wild plants, like the famous poke weed, can hurt you if not properly prepared.

    I’m not much on wild edibles , blueberries or blackberries are good.
    Having said that, I just ordered the book.
    Now I have a new mission when Wanda and I visit Popham Beach.
    Thanks Tom.

    Really nice.I like your creativity of topics.My ma used to show me all the plants to eat whenever we went out. Such a real bit of old history of transfer of knowledge for kids on the beach. Go Tom – you’ve got the old yankee charisma
