Need a Foraging Present?

Need a foraging present? I have you covered! Here are a couple great ideas! Foraging Books make great gifts for Foragers! Books like Wild Remedies by Rosalee de la Foret and Emily Han, Wild Edibles by Sergei Boutenko, Foraging With Kids by Adele Nozedar and Incredible Wild Edibles by Samuel Thayer are all great foraging books!  Foraging Class from The Herbal Academy This is another great gift for beginning or intermediate foragers from the Herbal Academy !      Foraging Journal I'd be remiss if I didn't mention my Foraging Journal ! This is a terrific gift for foragers with plenty of places to record specific plant information, maps, calendars, and recipes. These would be perfect paired with a foraging guide (like the ones listed above) and scissors like the ones below. Plus, I made it. Besitos!
