Lewis is a highly knowledgeable naturalist, who is enthusiastic about wild foods, mushrooms and creating new reciprocal paradigms of how we interact with other beings.

-The simplest strategies for getting to know plants

-How to correctly identify plants and mushrooms and how to rule out poisonous look a-likes

-The top wild staple foods in the area

-How to gather enough calories in a day to last a month

-How to harvest sustainably and promote wild edibles with guerrilla planting tactics

-How to incorporate more wild edibles into sustainable food producing ecosystems

-Plant propagation techniques for the best wild edibles in the Mid-Atlantic
