Ethiopia: Famine Food Field Guide

December 6, 2012

I posted this earlier, but somehow the first half of the original post seems to have disappeared… anyways, here’s the link to Ethiopia: Famine Food Field Guide, a very interesting and informative website, check it out.

Here is the intro/overview paragraph from the home page of the Ethiopia: Famine Food Field Guide site:

For many years the importance of wild plants in subsistence agriculture in the developing world as a food supplement and as a means of survival during times of drought and famine has been overlooked. Generally, the consumption of such so-called ‘wild-food’ has been and still is being under-estimated. This may very well be the case for Ethiopia, a so-called ‘biodiversity hot-spot’ and known as a centre of origin for a significant number of food plants (Bell, 1995).”

      Yeah, sorry, it should be there now. I had a full on intro to this post that somehow disappeared, but I just re inserted the link.
