    My wife and I are taking couple of workshops this summer at Institute for the Study of Edible Wild Plants and Other Foragables in Portland Oregon. Not expensive and gain knowledge from an expert in the field. Perhaps others like it in your area. Our ongoing education about the environment we live in and what is a resource and not a resource.

    Here is link if you’re in the Pacific Northwest. We plan to also take the course on foraging from coastal/marine environments.

    I sure hope to find some clams for tasty dinner!

    Thanks so much for this, Chester! My husband and I are in this area, as well, and this would be invaluable!

    PS – Yum, clams!!

    This type of knowledge is of primary importance anywhere. Know what is around you, and when it appears. I found a ‘goldmine’ of huge burr oak acorns that we and our friends have enjoyed. I am still learning the other wild things here in Oklahoma. When I grew up (in then-rural NJ) I knew almost everything in the woods.

    I have his book and saw him do a talk. He had tons of valuable information. I can’t wait for his next one to come out.

    Maybe we could start moving the separate threads about individual plants into this thread topic.

    I live in the PNW…and it is almost impossible to starve here. There are some great books for this area. Be sure you get the ones that list by season. It is useful to have what each plant looks like as they change.
    We eat about 1/4 of our summer meals from forage.
