Natural Medicine's WILD EDIBLES CHALLENGE: And The Winners Are...


The wisdom of the Wild Edibles Challenge was as much about finding, enjoying (and eating!) the natural medicine in your local area as it was in getting the post finished.

We hope that everyone who entered - and the many who thought about it and didn't get there - considered what grows in their local area, what's wild and edible and what might be possible in the future. We have collectively grown the knowledge banks for times to come when cultivated food may be less available and people will NEED to draw on this information, stored on our immutable Hive blockchain.

We do hope you had fun, too!

In total, we had 10 entries:

Our Week 1 winner @freemotherearth has already received her well-deserved prized of 20 Hive.

What really stood out in these entries?

  • not everything wild & edible needs to be a plant!
  • many wild things need special preparation to be edible
  • time of year is everything!
  • local knowledge matters

Find out about what grows wild near you and what the grandmas eat.

It's really hard to choose winners each week - there was something special about ALL of the entries, and we hope a few rewards came your way via upvotes, reblogs and engagement. It's sooo important that you all continue entering, whether you win or not, because it keeps the #naturalmedicine vibe alive by generating support and attention to our community.

The Winners of our Wild Edibles Challenge are:

25 Hive: @auelitairene

10 Hive: @minismallholding and @olivia08 and @notconvinced
