Tesliq (تسليق); part of rural lebanese dialect, refers to the act of collecting chard (seleq-سلق) which became associated with picking edible plants. Gathering shrubs offers a communal instinct, a sense of awareness that these plants belong to the community that looks after it.

The book weaves a collection of reflections around foraging as a communal tool to look for primary resources and to reclaim expropriated lands in Beirut.
