Mike King is a professional forager and founder of Finders Eaters. He's on a mission to discover the unique and unusual flavours of New Zealand's native plants. Some of his discoveries will open your mind to a new world of edible goodness that's all around us.
If you are interested in learning more about edible plants that you can find in the bush, at the beach and even in your own backyard, you'll get a lot out of this episode.

This episode of The Wild Podcast is brought to you by Water To Go. Water To Go has created a drink bottle with a unique 3 stage water filtration system, using 1 traditional and 2 nanotechnology methods to filter your water. The filter is lightweight, lasts for ages and is easy to use.
For us, using the Water To Go bottle means we don’t have to boil or chemically treat water and we can fill it anywhere - even a dirty, stagnant tarn - and know we're drinking clean clear water. It's perfect for hunting, tramping, international travel, bike packing or everyday use. The active bottle is the only filtration bottle designed for biking on the market.

We've set it up so you can choose from:
1. The cost of staying in a backcountry hut in New Zealand
2. The cost of staying in a serviced hut
We thought that was cool because our goal with every episode is to transport you from wherever you are into the outdoors.
Your support helps us to cover our costs and keep bringing you stories of explorers, adventure, and the great outdoors.
You can also support the show by leaving a five-star rating and/or a short review on iTunes.
