    Have you considered making a paper book or an ebook format for the information? It would be nice to be able to take something like that foraging, or just to be outdoors identifying the “weeds”. I find your pictures such a great tool for identifying plants, I no longer look at the plantlife on my commute to work in the same way.

  • Alvis June 25, 2013, 5:01 pm


    I swear I logged on to check if you had added anything weird like this and BAM! I’ve been itching to have this information cataloged for so long.

    We spoke once nearly a year ago during a class about some of your prospects. I hope the best, however if you do decide to go the book route.. DON’T E-BOOK! I would rather pay the $100 for your hardcover and less for your soft cover then see a bootlegged e-book go viral. You deserve every penny and I honestly believe a college style textbook would take you further in the long run.

  • Daniel Ross Whetson June 28, 2013, 12:54 pm

    A Paper book would be great/ espeacialy a field Guide wherein the pages are made water proof or resistant.

  • carl July 2, 2013, 12:16 pm

    yes a field guide would be perfect for all of us to carry around with us he may even help some of us from making a fatal mistake lol, like me lol

  • Frances Buntin July 7, 2013, 6:32 pm

    A field guide paper back would be great, because we spend so much of our time in the fields & woods. To have a reference guide with us would be wonderful.

  • Melody Hendrix July 30, 2013, 12:55 pm

    Oh, I agree about the waterproof paperback. You have the information right there at hand trying to figure out if it’s the right plant to eat. Pleeeeeez πŸ™‚

  • Lorraine Meiden August 4, 2013, 3:42 pm

    The above comments are exactly what I think. Can’t take a DVD into the garden or woods and I would NOT remember what I saw on the DVD when I got there !

    Thanks for all your information.

  • zola godfrey October 15, 2013, 1:57 pm

    I too, would like to have a book.

  • Jjerdoc Doc J October 26, 2013, 4:26 pm

    Me too….I would buy it in a second!!!!!

  • Liz October 29, 2013, 12:11 am

    I was searching site for your book! I agree with others! Want book to use for reference.

  • Rhonda Kelley November 3, 2013, 7:45 pm

    Agree with all the above comments. When searching for plants a book is so valuable. Waterproof pages are priceless. Think of the lives you can help.

  • Ann Silverness November 10, 2013, 2:28 pm

    I really enjoyed your class out in Jacksonville and would love to do more. I also would love a book version of your DVD collection too- just in case the power grid goes down πŸ˜‰ Thanks, Ann

  • marie terrell November 13, 2013, 12:25 am

    Yes! book book book it. Love your website. I am deaf and your site doesnt specify if the DVD’s are captioned

    • Green Deane November 13, 2013, 8:04 am

      The DVDs are not captioned. The thought never occured to me. I’ll have to look into it.

      • marie terrell July 5, 2014, 2:47 pm

        scoping ‘cat brier’ edible info and saw your ad for dvd. Have you captioned yet? I will buy all your series if you have CC.
        Still searching for an excellent ‘field book’. Petersons is the best edible plant book so far and what i see on your page and ‘silent videos’ (deaf me) you know how to present the identification process of edibles in all stages not just keying them out by ‘blossoms’ color. I love how you get comfortable and chat about the plants like you are introducing a good friend to us for the first time.

        • Green Deane July 7, 2014, 3:11 pm

          I had not considered captioning the videos and really am not sure how that is done.

  • Kate January 14, 2014, 11:40 pm

    I got a new kindle, from my daughter, for Christmas. I know nothing about it. Is it possible to get these downloaded to a kindle?

    • Green Deane January 15, 2014, 6:37 am

      No, while the are down loadable to a regular computer (if you have have one of many programs that will do that) but not a reading device like a kindle.

      • ken hart April 1, 2014, 12:38 pm

        If im not mistaken Amazon has a place to make kindle books that one can sell,and buy.

  • Saemus January 20, 2014, 6:51 am

    I would love to see someone develop wallet-sized identification cards for wild edibles. One card could easily hold the key identifying traits with pictures for one plant. These would be great to carry when I’m backpacking. I almost always pick some edibles while I’m hiking to add to my evening meal. At the very least, I’ll gather enough greens for a salad, but often, I’ll add other edibles like cattail shoots or blueberries. However, I won’t try anything I’m not sure of, and there are a number of edibles I can only find on the trail. I’d love to be able to take 10-12 cards with me while hiking to expand my knowledge.

    • Green Deane January 20, 2014, 9:27 am

      There are many companies offering said on the internet. Just google foraging deck of cards

      • carl April 8, 2014, 10:22 pm

        yes the cards would be good the army used to use the cards a few years ago don’t think they do now but they were playing cards with wild edibles with description on them as well very successful if you were into playing
        cards good way to teach children too.

        • Green Deane April 9, 2014, 9:12 am

          I have read that Julia Morton, a professor at the university of Miami, came up with those for pilots in Vietnam during that war.

  • Zac Womcak February 20, 2014, 3:07 pm

    Would love to see a book too… DVDs are great but hard to take out to the field. Right now I print pages off… But I would much rather pay you for a good book.

  • david elton March 10, 2014, 11:00 am

    how do I get a hold of your books on edible plants

    • Green Deane March 10, 2014, 2:54 pm

      I have not done books on edible plants. I did the website and videos instead. Haven’t ruled out a book, though.

      • Carleton Jones January 27, 2015, 8:56 am

        I also would buy a book if it were ever available. Please keep my email if you do so one day.
        Thanks , Carleton Jones
        Newnan, GA

  • Mark June 15, 2014, 2:49 pm

    Please count me in as someone who would buy a book in a heartbeat!
    I’d also (happily!) pay more for a hardcover and even more for one that
    was made waterproof (there are some books out there that are completely
    waterproof, but I’ve never seen a plant identification guide made that
    way even though it would be the most useful waterproof book on the
    Thank you!

  • James June 16, 2014, 4:04 am

    Mr. Deane I live in Pensacola, FL and would like to say thank you so much for all the knowledge you have shared. Everyone’s comment about a book I think is a great idea. I bring your videos with me in the woods, but a book would be lovely. I would buy it in a heart beat. The Arcadia Mill trails are full of yaupon and never knew it till your videos. Once again thank you.

  • Anita Lane July 8, 2014, 3:47 pm

    A paperback book would be great. Thank you for the hard work and information. Ocala, FL, is a great place.

  • KENT JOHNCOX July 9, 2014, 1:32 pm

    Sir Dean, I have just now discovered you via a simple google search on the ability to eat a particular wild berry. Judging by the comments If you have yet to do the BOOK! – Strong, authorative but brief (references for home?), water and pack proof, high
    grade photos with assorted other buzzers & necessary bells as well as all that has occured to you and YOUR FANS! I now want one of those books and I so hope you have done or are doing the project. I will dig more to find out but you are really doing something VERY well! You have readers encouraging you not to go via a route where you shall NOT get ripped off as has happened especially in the early day of e-books.
    I also hope it is a fine, well “shot”, waterproof, carry with me capsule comment book that I can take foraging. How can I find out? I will risk e-mail if I must but please a public statement on the when, where, how, when, names and complex numerical file #’s please? If u Sir can’t help could a fellow fan/reader?
    Very many thanks!

  • sylvia forest October 26, 2014, 10:16 pm

    Just wondering how much of this info is applicable to other areas – like Sydney, Australia? I recognise some of the plants – have dandelion, chickweed and sow’s thistle (too much of that!) in my vege garden and around the place. But not sure about some of the others.

    • Green Deane October 27, 2014, 1:25 pm

      A reasonable question. We share much of the same “weeds” because we share the same immigrant waves from Europe. And we have a lot of shared ornamentals as well. It is safe to say the majority are shared but not the entirety.

  • patsy hillman December 15, 2014, 5:50 pm

    Mr Deane
    I am in awe of the knowledge you have and the ability to make it understandable. The fact that you cook and eat what you preach is great. Please let this knowledge loose in all forms of publications and yes that means books. If the DVDs were simply copied into waterproof books with easy reading print and the wonderful pictures each one would be worth its weight in gold as you are.

    Thanks so much for what you do!

  • Ginger December 23, 2014, 11:29 pm

    Can you please make a recommendation on which of your videos contain information on plants growing in East Texas/Piney Woods area? Thank you!

  • Debbie January 1, 2015, 7:48 pm


    You are one of the most important people in my world. I am living from the wild foods. It’s all I am able to afford and without your commitment, I just don’t know where I would be right now. I agree with the others. I would love to have a waterproof guide. I live in the Ouichita Mountains in East Central Arkansas. I have nine acres of destroyed forest. It was so beautiful until the ice storms. Most of the trees have fallen. Trees on top of trees, brush and limbs that have formed walls that makes foraging very hard. every plant is precious. The house is on top of a rock ledge. I’m sorry, guess I needed to get it out. I would appreciate the help of a book. God bless you for all you do.

  • michael small January 2, 2015, 7:41 pm

    Thank you very much for putting together this information. I have live here in Florida all my life and really tried to
    eat any of the local plants. I would nice to be able to kinda of live off the land. I do have chickens and goats. Happy new Year!!

    Michael Small

  • Jasmin February 18, 2015, 2:17 am

    Is it possible to have a digital copy instead of being sent via mail?
    I really need it right now and instant access for all the DVDs would be really nice. Do you also accept Paypal? πŸ™‚

    • Green Deane February 18, 2015, 11:32 am

      The question has never come up probably because the videos can be downloaded for free off the internet. And yes there is a paypal button on the DVD page.

  • Nancy April 20, 2015, 1:27 pm

    Thank you for the information you have provided with the videos you have produced. I have learned important things about different wild foods. do you think you will produce more videos about different parts of america and different wild foods?
    thank you again for what you have provided for us all to learn to be more independent of the grocery store…..Blessings.

  • Rex Moore August 2, 2015, 10:04 pm

    Enjoying your videos. Keep them coming.

  • Mike September 20, 2015, 10:44 am

    Deane. DO A BOOK! PLEASE

  • deb October 4, 2015, 6:55 pm

    Please, please, please convert these videos into a book…PLEASE!!

  • Stanley Paul October 30, 2015, 11:50 am

    Took a eat the weeds class with Green Deane. The class was extremely informative and I learnt a boat load of new and useful information. This is class is a must for everyone in this day of processed foods and GMO nation. Thanks Green Deane. -Stanley

  • rose ladnier December 3, 2015, 8:01 pm

    I would love a book also If the grid goes down

    • Please yes, I would like to purchase a book August 5, 2016, 4:30 pm

      for the reasons listed above.

  • john December 29, 2015, 10:55 pm

    I, too, would like to see this wealth of information in book form. If the grid goes down or a solar storm or electromechanical pulse hit us, our electronics would be fried and there would be no way to watch the info on DVDs.

    • Fakename December 30, 2015, 4:04 pm

      Electro-magnetic pulse is what impacts electronics

      • Dave-o February 5, 2016, 10:55 pm

        Solar storm flares are electro magnetic pulses.

      I really would like printed volumes to purchase. When electricity is not an option we will need books. Smile. Anonymous

  • RLM McWilliams July 27, 2016, 12:03 pm

    Another vote for a book version of ‘Eat the Weeds’! You are already a writer…

  • Karen piesley August 28, 2016, 3:40 pm

    Please need your book as many others do

  • Mike September 7, 2016, 1:01 pm

    Would buy a book, but videos are no good if there is an EMP Strike. If the SHTF even pic’s and a little info could save a life and some child from starving…Great site.

  • Francine February 22, 2017, 12:00 pm

    Book please…..can you include Florida wild edibles?

    • Mark Pierce May 16, 2017, 12:31 am

      I was looking for that as a book when I found web sight . I would buy the book unless price is prohibitive as I am senior citizen!

  • Corri May 16, 2017, 10:56 am

    I would love a field guild of the Southern Plants- Top 100 edibles maybe. Videos are great but I can’t walk through a bog with my laptop. PS I love walking around friends yards and eating their landscape. Corri

    • Green Deane May 16, 2017, 4:55 pm

      There really isn’t such a book. For the time being Florida’s Wild Edible by Peggy Lantz is acceptable.

  • Iris June 5, 2017, 3:12 pm

    I need the book. Please let me know when it is available. . A DVD would make an excellent SUPPLEMENT to a book but only a book can be referenced quick and easy without electric gadgets that go out of date too fast.

  • James June 6, 2017, 3:02 pm

    Having just made a few comments, I to think a waterproofed book would be a good deal for those of us who would like to purchase said book … Especislly as I have one that got wet and is ruined, 50 dollars down the drain and Id gladly pay more to have one that is waterproof and tells us as it is… Thanku for ur time and devotion to us all

  • Michael August 11, 2017, 2:49 am

    I’d like multiple copies of a book also. Please notify me.

  • Ray Gremillion November 1, 2017, 2:49 am

    I have a serious schetoma about remembering the wild plants you video for us. I do a lot of hunting, fishing, castnetting/seining and wilderness survival stuff with 7 of my grandsons. We’ve built and done some fabulous projects together. I’d love to have a book of yours to buy for each one of them. It would definitely be the most valuable item I leave behind in terms of usefulness. I’m rapidly approaching the point where I won’t be able to venture out with them any longer. I believe we have an abundance of wild edibles here in south Louisiana. I’d love to take some walks with them specifically looking for wild edibles while I still can. Please write the book!!! Ray

    No, I don’t think “schetoma” is a real word. I think brain fart would be a better-but crude-er. description. Thanks for the

    • Green Deane November 1, 2017, 9:47 am

      Scotoma: a partial loss of vision or a blind spot in an otherwise normal visual field. Surprisingly about the only thing holding me back from writing a book is that most programs today do not easily generate an index. Twenty years ago I had a PC that to generate an index all I had to do was tag a word. Now all the programs require a dozen steps or so. It’s been a big stumbling block.

  • Andrew December 7, 2017, 1:58 am

    I am echoing the multiple support comments for a book to take to the field. A funding platform like kick starter may be a resource in getting the idea off the ground. Thanks for all the videos.
