Wild Harvests: Making extracts and recipes

This third part of a three-part series will introduce you to the basics of foraging. Learn about plant identification; gathering plants; edible and medicinal weeds; ethical considerations; sustainability; and how to harvest, dry, and prepare plants for food and first aid. Your guide is Nicole Telkes, who has gathered from the wild since she was a child, and has taught extensively across North America on the subject. Nicole demonstrates and discusses harvesting considerations when gathering from the wild, and brings you through her harvest of some wild edibles and medicinals so you can see different ways to enjoy your harvests as both food and first aid. She also leaves you with some takeaways to keep moving you forward on your path as a forager, especially when it comes to giving back to the wild.
