What is Foraging?

Foraging is the practice of harvesting food from nature. It is the ancient human story of community and survival. Learning the lifeways of trees, herbs, mushrooms, and animals used to be essential for humanity and by many accounts a return to that knowledge has never been more necessary and rewarding. Foraging can be done in the city, countryside, forest, or even your backyard. I'm here to teach you how!
