JOSEPH SIMCOX

THE FRUITFUL FOREST 1 hr

 

With over 20,000 species of edible plants on the planet, humans use  barely 20 species to provide 90% for our food. Why do we utilize so little when there is so much? Joseph Simcox, passion driven ‘Food Plant Ecologist’ has traveled to over 100 countries, finding, documenting and eating all the plants we don't use.

From the deep jungles of Papua New Guinea To the vast deserts of Namibia Africa, he sheds light on the extraordinary wonders of the edible plant world. In this film, Joseph meets-up with his brother Patrick Simcox in Peru, along with their team, amd ventures deep into the Amazon jungle to document, taste, and shed light on a  fraction of the most amazing offerings nature provides.

Come along on the adventure!
