How to Use This Website

There are three ways to find a plant on this blog.
1. By common name as listed in the sidebar to the left.

2. On the right sidebar you can look for the plant based on the environment it grows, season, plant type, flower color, fruit or seedpod color, use, and Geographic Location in North America. Note in that last one plants tagged "All USA" won't show up under the individual USA regions.

3. The blog search box at the top of the page can be used to search for key words such as scientific names.

Foods edible raw have been marked with the Raw label to make them easier to focus on by raw foodists. Please read the plant details to identify which parts of the plant can safely be eaten raw and thoroughly wash any plants, especially if collected from ponds, streams, marshes, or swamps.

I'm a teacher at heart so if you have questions feel free to e-mail me and I'll try to answer them. Also, please read and take to heart the Foraging Ethics. This is to insure that the joy of wild foods remains available to all.
