Learning how to forage is like learning how to raid Nature’s pantry. Here are four simple reasons for why everyone should forage and some best practices to keep in mind.
THE FORAGER’S PATH
My foraging journey began two or three years ago when I lived by a forest trail.
It was a beautiful respite from busy living and I walked there frequently, delighting in the rich canopy of green.
Sometime after the Pokemon GO! game came out, I was walking through the woods trying to catch Pokemon (I am SO ashamed to admit this) when I stopped dead in my tracks and came to my senses.
Why was I putting so much time and energy into imaginary critters when I didn’t even know what was growing around me?
I loved the woods, but I was a stranger.
Why was it that I could identify Pokemon and corporate logos, but not something real and tangible?
Something needed to change!
