On today’s episode of American gypC Podcast we are discussing the benefits of adding cavemanistic ways to your life with Mark “Merriwether” Vorderbruggen. Mark is a Ph.D. chemist, an herbalist, and a nationally-recognized foraging instructor bringing you over a decade of public speaking at museums, garden clubs, prepper groups, historical societies, nature parks, botanical gardens, MENSA clubs, distilleries, Toastmasters, and multiple podcasts.
Having a M.S. in medicinal chemistry and a Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry, he brings science into the world of wild edible and medicinal plants. On the science side he has fourteen patents and numerous articles in research journals from his career as an industrial chemist. But his true love is plants and the miracles they contain. Since 2008 his website www.foragingtexas.com has been one of the top wild edible/medicinal plant sites on the internet; he’s written countless foraging articles for a wide variety of magazines; taught hundreds of foraging walkabouts; appeared on radio, TV, and podcasts galore; wrote the acclaimed book Idiot’s Guide Foraging (available on Amazon); and was co-creator of the Wazoo Survival Gear foraging bandana. In 2016 he turned his herbal chemistry skills to consumer goods to help develop the Workman’s Friend line of skin care products. In 2020 he made the biggest leap of his life to become the medicine man for Medicine Man Plant Co. where he can finally bring forth the ancient plants that can still help with modern issues.
