    Foraging has become a rather popular topic and activity lately. It brings us great joy to know that more people are spending time outdoors, interacting with nature, perhaps even teaching their kids where our food and medicine comes from. The process of identification, harvest, and preparation of wild edibles and medicinals brings us closer to our immediate ecosystem and strengthens our sense of food security and wellness.

    But it is a practice ripe for abuse. Lack of education and destructive, overzealous behavior can be potentially dangerous to the individual and devastating to the environment. However, keeping just a few things in mind and following some best practices, foraging can be a fun and rewarding experience without harming the environment or one’s self.
