Foraging for Wild Edible Plants
This course will introduce you to the basics of gathering and eating wild plants in a sustainable way in order for you to feel a deeper connection to your landscape and to offer you a wealth of vitamins and nutrients that are lacking from cultivated crops. We will discuss safety tips and useful equipment, as well as what to look for in different habitats and seasons. General guidance on how to navigate the literature on foraging will be presented. We can cover at least a couple dozen species and perhaps more if time permits.
