Milkweed Magic

Hello from Boulder, CO!
I’ve been having such a great summer, spending most of it outdoors and eating a lot of wild plants along the way. One of my favorites is common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca), and it’s time to eat its silk. So luxurious! Will probably be enjoying some for dinner over the full moon tonight.

I’ll be posting a video from the Wild Foods Summit on the White Earth Reservation, hopefully soon. But also wanted to put a call out for anyone who might be interested in joining my son and friend/assistant Johnny along the way. We need someone to assist with harvesting and preserving wild foods, researching wild foods, logistics of where the plants are and what they are doing, helping me prep and clean up from filming cooking segments of the television show, and general upkeep of life in the RV. If anyone is interested, please send an email to: There’s a small stipend for the roughly 3 1/2 month commitment, from early September through mid-December.

    Hello Sunny! I know you have been crazy busy with TV show; I have been watching your site for updates. It was good to see a new posting, and I look forward to hearing more after/during the Food Summit. Abbey and Emily are arriving Friday for annual 3 week visit. We just camped near St. Helens with Sue and Steve. Gorgeous. xoxo njb

    Hello! I’m looking for some fresh milkweed for a monarch butterfly project with my kindergarteners. I live in Boulder. Any suggestions on where I could get some? Thanks!
