I have read this before. It is a good reminder that foraging can be done year round, and a good refresher to read over the list.
I want to do some plant foraging walks with our small homeschool group in different seasons. We are at the very beginning planning stages for activities right now, but this is certainly one that I would like to suggest. Considering the families in this group, and that my kids are getting more knowledgeable, it should go over very well.
Once we are done foraging, it would then be fun to make something to eat out of what we foraged and complete the process. All too often foraging is done, but then the plant material tends to sit. I've done that and ine mom complained that she has tried foraging a little and ended up having this problem. She also admitted that she has very little knowledge at this point.
