Episode 16: Roll Up Your Sleeves, Go Outside and Get Some Food with Tamar Haspel

Tamar Haspel calls herself a “crappy gardener” but she’s here to tell us it’s totally do-able to go outside and get what she calls “first hand food,” by foraging, fishing, gardening and more. She shares why doing so can be so transformative, and gives us easy ways to start, no matter where you live.

Tamar writes the James Beard Award-winning Washington Post column Unearthed, which tackles food from every angle: agriculture, nutrition, obesity, the food environment. She’s also written for Discover, Vox, Slate, Fortune, Eater, and Edible Cape Cod. Her new book about gleaning dinner from the world around you is TO BOLDLY GROW: Finding Joy, Adventure, and Dinner in Your Own Backyard.
