Veteran Forager- Vanessa Waters
"Foraging is a collaborative activity. It's about sharing, and it requires a deep connection to place. There is an unwritten etiquette involving a caring for others. A rule of thumb is to take no more than a third of what is growing profusely. This way you leave some for the animals, others and enough for the plant to propagate so there is some next year."
Michael Pollan points out that "17% of fossil fuels go to feeding ourselves, compared with 18% used for personal transportation so industrial agriculture has a big impact on climate change." Another great reason to learn about the abundance in our ecosystem.
