Wild Harvests: Weedcrafting

This second 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. In this part, Nicole will bring you on a virtual guided plant walk to look at wild edibles and medicinals. She concentrates on some important medicinal and edible weeds to get started with as a forager, and then discusses sustainability guidelines when it comes to gathering from wild spaces.
