Description
Join a couple of Royal Foresters as we discuss the history, basics, and hazards of foraging plants. We will begin by taking a look at the medieval literature regarding foraging on public lands and aspects of forestry law. We will also discuss some practical aspects of modern forest foraging with a focus on the mid-Atlantic region. Caveat: mushrooms are beyond the scope of this class. This class will be recorded pending approval from attendees. Here are the slides in pdf format, permissions should be fixed now. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Y7GyE-QMvs8HVO3e7Q9uqzyPWdCNGJGX/view?usp=sharing
