Audible Weed Walk – ep.61 “Need for nutrition and wild green in response”

In a world that has one third of the entire population micronutrient deficient and wild weedy greens are rich in them – one wonders why wild weedy greens are not more popular. In my work and evidence across the globe shows social-cultural stigma and dwindling knowledge about them may be the reasons. There is hunger across the globe, and India ranked poorly at 101/116 countries, significantly lower then all our neighbors, there is a need to look at the wild weedy nutritious greens as easy, accessible, and possible source of nutrition, micronutrients, and also a means to adapt to the changing climate and be linked to the nature.
