Landship Foods is inspired by the conviction that growing and eating healthy food is one of the most important things we can do for both ourselves and the broader communities of which we are a part. The name comes from the language of pre-industrial Europe. Before the enclosure movement and the associated rise in notions of private property swept England, the suffix “-ship” (as in "relationship," or "friendship") referred to an object or an abstraction with collective duties and mutual rights. Thus, the term “landship” suggests that land was an entity through which humans were joined to each other by a set of rights and responsibilities. I advocate for a revival of this awareness.

But I also really like the purslane:
Considered a weed by most Americans (commonly called pigweed), purslane is also a delectable edible. It is ridiculously healthy and can be steamed, stir-fried, eaten in a salad...Most botanists argue it originated in India, and many purslane enthusiasts claim it was Gandhi's favorite food.
Gather wild edibles responsibly, by checking out lots of reputable sources.
