To Become A Forager...


How will you learn? On the left you'll find details posts on over 200 edible and medicinal plants, each with multiple, big pictures and information you need for proper identification. To the right side of this page are upcoming live classes where we actually will walk side by side as I show you the useful plants around you. You'll be able to hold them in your hand as you learn the structural features you need to recognize the plants on your own...before popping them into your mouth!

Follow the Foraging Texas Facebook page and/or Instagram account for daily introductions to the edible, medicinal, and poisonous plants of Texas (and other, equally important places!)

Check out the books and gear from the Foraging Texas Amazon Shop specially picked out to help you progress from scared novice to master forager, able to take care of yourself and your loved ones from the bounty of nature.

Watch the YouTube videos of my live show and from many plant-walks, great for bing-watching!

Email your questions to Merriwether@ForagingTexas.com and I'll answer them in a day or so (okay, maybe three days).

In the end, the secret is to identify the most common plants around you then look up if those plants are edible, medicinal, or toxic. The resources I'm sharing with you will simplify that process down to one plant at a time rather than drowning you in a sea of green. Trust me, you can do this. Humans have been doing it for 200,000 years!
