Modern Foraging (online)

Foraging for wild edible plants has grown in popularity among a new audience of people looking to become more self-reliant and connected to nature.

Content Detail

Foraging for wild edible plants has grown in popularity among a new audience of people looking to become more self-reliant and connected to nature. Understanding the historical context of foraging and how to do it ethically is essential knowledge for anyone interested in this practice. This live, online lecture and discussion will: 

  • consider the historical, cultural, and ecological context of foraging, 
  • explore nature as a relationship rather than a resource, 
  • discuss how to practice foraging in a way that honors the land and upholds Indigenous values, and
  • cover commonly foraged wild plants of the Midwest – and what to avoid!

Automated captioning is provided for this program.
