Wildcrafting, the art of making food/medicine/textiles out of wild plants, is a wonderful way to commune with the earth, prepare for disasters, or to get an insight into the everyday life of our foremothers/fathers. Wild plants are nutritionally dense, much more so than conventionally farmed or even home-grown produce. To know and understand the abundance around you - food and medicine is everywhere! - is a complete worldview shift. We save hundreds on our grocery bills just by spending a bit of time ethically foraging the wild abundance around us. With a bit of imagination, it is possible to live entirely off of the land around you, whether you live in the city or the country. No matter where you live, there is food everywhere, in all seasons.

I offer wild edible walks as part of a group, lasting 2-3 hours, and dates are announced on my Facebook Page. Bring a notebook and pen, water, hiking or walking shoes, and weather-appropriate attire. Depending on what is growing in the season, we will go through 30-50 wild plants, their medicinal and nutritional properties, and how to use them.
