– The Database to Find a Forager Near You!

find a forager

Find a Forager!

This is a database to help you to find a forager near you!

There are an incredible number of people who desire to connectt with the land and learn how they can work with the plants in their region. There are already many online resources and books available to begin foraging but I believe the best way to begin foraging is by learning from a knowledgeable forager in your area. Many local foragers are out there, but they can be hard to find, especially for people who have just awakened to this possibility.

This database focuses on foragers in the United States and Canada.

See our more limited Find A Forager International Database here.

If you are a forager and would like to be added to this database, please scroll to the bottom of this page for instructions. If you know of foragers who would like to be on this database please also submit them via the instructions on the bottom of the page.

Note: Foragers listed in this database have not been verified or endorsed by
Discretion is required by you, the potential forager, to decide who to go foraging with and to trust. This site is 100% free and non-monetized and is here solely to help others begin foraging.

We have found many foragers using existing online databases and have included them here. The following are four lists/databases that we recommend. The foragers that we have added from these databases are marked with asterisks.

Afro Forager’s Instagram list of Afro Foragers

Green Dean’s list (marked with *)

Samuel Thayer’s list (marked with **) (marked with ***) local foraging tours, walks, groups and classes in your state and Foraging YouTubers and online classes by region.

The Association of Foragers which lists over 100 foragers, primarily in Western Europe. (marked with ****)

We are also working on a Beginner’s Guide to Foraging, packed with resources, which is in process here.

If you are a forager and would like to be added to this database, please email with the subject line “Find a Forager” and include the following information:

If you know of foragers who would like to be on this database, please also submit them via these instructions.

– Name

– City, State (if USA), Country where you are available for foraging/ where your knowledge is based

– Secondary locations (if you offer classes in other areas besides your primary area)

– Website, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube

– Webpage where your classes are listed

– Email, phone number if you desire this info to be publicly listed

– Link to books

– Other important resources

You do not need to be an expert forager, but we are looking to add people who serve as resources to their community to teach foraging. We are especially looking to add foragers who offer classes (whether group or private and whether free or paid) and who offer local information.

If you know of foragers who would like to be on this database, please submit them via email.

Please also submit books, website, groups, etc. for us to add to our resources.
