– The Database to Find a Forager Near You!

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 connect 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.

Our database focuses on foragers in the United States and Canada which can be viewed here. The page below has a limited number of foragers outside of the US and Canada. We intend to expand this as well.

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