  • Reflection Question
    Create Your Own Action Forage for My Food
    People are motivated to forage for many different reasons: as a source for food, a means of income, to connect with nature, to participate in cultural tradition, transmitting specific ecological knowledge, or as a means of stewarding local and native plant populations are just a few examples. What is your chief motivation for foraging?

    To connect with nature by being more in touch with the path the food takes from its origin to my plate.
