Second Dispatch: Beltane - Let Food Be Thy Medicine
May 5 - 2014

In this Dispatch, the focus is on food. If I have done my job, there will be many small “ah-ha” moments that arise as you make your way from the cover to the concluding comments. 

This month our regular columnists provide significant insights, from Arthur Haines' exposition on wild phyto-nutrition and selecting near-wild farmed produce, to Frank Giglio’s body-balancing bone broth recipe — which will likely be a staple of many ReWilder's diets for decades to come. Wild Woman — Ali Schueler — Speaks, addressing optimizing our emotional eating patterns, and our guest Morgan Maher explores some of the nebulous ethics of animals-as-food. 

Prepare to be edified by this Dispatch's incredible interviews with Nora Gedgaudas on becoming a feral ninja warrior, Samuel Thayer on a life of foraging wild plants, and Arthur Haines on detecting fad diets!

All of these are punctuated by articles — which will make the most sense when read in the sequence that they appear — that help to fill in the blanks, addressing things our parents, teachers, and culture never told us about the food we eat.

It is my sincerest hope that you will find something meaningful and useful in the following articles and interviews, something that will be incorporated into your life and the life of your family — maybe even for generations to come.

I invite you to sit down with this magazine at a time when nothing else is competing for your attention, so you can focus on simply digesting the material before you. We have striven to provide content that is in dramatic contrast to the style of the day — short quips, photos with euphemisms plastered across them, and articles which over-promise and under-deliver. Instead, here you will find thorough, well composed, and truly valuable (maybe even life changing) articles written from an unapologetically feral mindset. With how much data we all have coming at us constantly, I personally want to thank you for taking the time — your time — and sharing it with me and the contributors who have written and spoken here. 
May your Wild heart be forever free!
