A Word on Safety

If you are interested in knowing more about wild edible plants I encourage you to become your own expert.

You may learn to positively identify only one plant, but you will be 100% sure of that plant.

Purchase a few good field guides. They should include clear, color photographs of the plants.   Check references against each other - compare for consistency and accuracy.

​​​Books and internet sources should always include information on ‘poisonous look-alikes’, if any.   

​DON’T put a plant in your mouth until you are 100% sure of ​it's identity!
Welcome to the World of Wild Edibles!​

​Foraging, or the harvesting of wild food, is exciting on so many levels. It's fun and rewarding, and satisfies a necessary connection to nature.

Wild edible plants provide superior nutrition.
Foraging promotes environmental sensitivity and awareness of the natural world.

​A weed is a plant that has mastered 
every survival skill except for ​learning how to ​grow in rows.
​- Doug Larson
We need the tonic of wildness.
​​- Henry David Thoreau
Weeds are flowers too, once you get to 
​know them. 
​ - A.A. Milne
