PLEASE NOTE: Always use caution when foraging for edible plants! Being 100% certain of your ID is absolutely critical. Never harvest from the wild without doing research first and be sure to learn about responsible harvesting practices. Even when correctly identified, it is still advisable to prepare foraged plants properly and only consume a small amount when trying something new.

Please keep this in mind when you come to visit: Planting the right plant in the right place makes all the difference when it comes to it’s ability to not only survive, but thrive! Make sure you are aware of what growing conditions your native plant requires before you take it home.
