Wild Food Plants - Northwest Meadowscapes

Wild Food Plants

Gathering edible roots, bulbs and herbs reconnects us to the fundamental, but increasingly rare human experience of foraging. More than that, the act of gathering wild food plants can improve the land for wild plants and animals. Selective harvesting can aerate the soil, work the seeds of desirable plants into the soil, separate bulblets into new plants, provide moments for necessary weeding, and give insights into how each step we take impacts the land.
