The Foraging Gourmet



I found this charming quote from Henry David Thoreau on the internet one day.    

    “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I have not lived.”

Foraging is the art of living well with nature. It is not survivalism, but rather a more refined attempt at bring onto our tables and into our larders delicious, nutritious food that is free in nature.

This food is not genetically modified..there are no hormones or fertilizers. It eco-friendly, in that it is near your home, in your gardens, flower beds, parks and wastelands. No hydrocarbons were burned to plant it, tend it or harvest it.

It provides you with exercise on a sunny day and, in the words of Thoreau, provides you with the opportunity to learn what the woods can teach,



One or two generations ago, our parents had clothes lines, chicken coops, gardens and regularly hunted, fished and foraged from the wild.
