Food is growing freely and abundantly all around us, but many of us walk past this food every day without ever noticing. In this video I share eleven easy plants to help you begin foraging along with some of my basic tips to help you comfortably get started. I’m here to help you realize that our food doesn’t have to come from the grocery store. It can come from our own communities and we can produce and harvest our food in a sustainable manner.

See my beginner’s guide to foraging.
