Find, #eat and share the world edible #plants – an interview with Joseph Simcox, the Botanical Explorer

Earlier this week I had a visit from Joseph Simcox, the self-styled Botanical explorer. A dynamo of a man, he’s travelled the world to over 100 countries to find, eat and share as many of the huge range of edible plants people have eaten. In this interview, he talks about that, why we now only eat so few of them and explains what drives him to share these resources and expand our range of food plants in the face of climate change.
