TUTORIAL - Australian Wild Edibles

So the Informed Preppers live on the East Coast of Australia, and as such our knowledge of wild edibles is limited to our own biome. But if you also happen to live in that area, here's a few info-cards you can use to track down and find edible wild plants in the wild. Being stranded in the wilderness is a battle to keep your calorie count up (among other things) and you'll need all the help you can get to stay alive. Hunting game will provide valuable protein, but eating only game meat will lead to you suffering from what is known as "rabbit starvation", so you need to get some greens. I hear a lot of people saying "I'll just hunt animals for food", however that alone won't help you over an extended period - also, hunting takes a lot of energy, even if you're just setting up a heap of traps. So learning to find and - more importantly - correctly recognise edible plants in your area is an incredibly important survival skill.

Hopefully these cards can help some of you.

Don't forget: stay sharp, stay positive, and be prepared, not scared.
