Foraging for Wild Foods

Plants have been and continue to be immensely important to people. They provide food, medicine, materials for shelter, fuel for heating dwellings and cooking food, fibers for cordage and clothing, wood for tools and hunting weapons, etc. Aboriginal people knew which plants could be used for various purposes, where to find them, and how to process them. They possessed an intimate relationship with plants that began with learning how to identify them and deepened as they learned their smell, their taste, the quality of their fibers, the timing of their flowers, and so on. Contemporary people still rely heavily on plants, but, unfortunately, most people in developed countries are no longer able to find, collect, and process the materials they need to sustain their lives. Not only has this led to populaces that are entirely dependent on agribusiness and manufacturers, but it has also removed people from direct participation in the circle of life. This, in turn, has created populations who do not know the functions and values of wild places (both large and small) and has led to apathy for protecting these open spaces.
