Last week urban forager and blogger Rebecca Lerner undertook a seven day experiment to eat only foraged foods found within the city limits of Portland.

She blogged about her experiment on the website http://www.culturechange.org.

KBOO Reporter Geoff Watland spoke with Rebecca today to ask how the experiment turned out.

I saw someone stop by my front yard and pluck the dandelion greens (might have been some other flower)... and just started eating them and walked away. It was a first for me to see someone do that, but I rather enjoyed that mentality.

5 day fast?

Bravo for the effort.
Those nettles are pretty bitter, huh?
I could only stomach them with lots of butter too.
Supposed to be good for the liver but my main question is...why?
I mean, were you trying to bring the publics awareness around to something or just drawing attention to yourself?
I'm curious to know more along those lines and I think the interviewer would've served the public better by just asking common sense questions like this.

Good ...um, thing... interview/post/program!
