WELCOME! COMMENTS, CAUTIONS, & TIPS!


“Re-wilding” is about learning to live with nature, again.

 

Our natural world contains fantastic natural resources for food, fiber, medicine and crafts that have been cherished by people of many cultures for thousands of years.  It is our aim to educate ourselves about the wild plants, native and non-native, in our region. During this process, it is important to cultivate an open mind because there are always new things to learn. It is also a good habit to refer to multiple sources of information and to keep a notebook. No one source contains all the information on wild edibles, and some information can be incorrect. Certain plants have been called 'poisonous' when only specific parts are, or they need special preparation in order to become edible, or they are for medicinal use only. Rather than rely solely on foraging, we also encourage you to grow wild plants yourself so they can be close at hand. Most wild edibles can grow anywhere - in yards, planters, and pots!  So, welcome to our community and enjoy learning about our WILD WORLD OF PLANTS!
