Inspired by the amazing Oxford Poetry Library (and by an urgent need to make space on my bookshelves), I’m starting a free informal lending-library of all my wild-food and foraging books.

Are you in Oxford, and do you want to borrow any of the books listed below? Email me or Tweet to me @OxfordWildFood on Twitter.
