Based out of Pittsburgh, PA, my goal is obtaining, distributing, and educating people on various wild plants and mushrooms for edible and medicinal use, with a focus on ethical harvesting and sustainability.
If you have a business that makes use of these specialized forest products, whether it be gourmet mushrooms, wild nuts and fruits, medicinal wild plants, bones, or other decorative creations of nature, I will collect by request.
I will also purchase from foragers who may not have the clientele or certifications to sell them on their own. I am certified in the state of PA to identify and distribute wild foraged mushrooms.
Another aspect will be education, community involvement, and workshops educating others on primitive skills and foraging. I will also be offering services to come to your property to identify and educate you on the plants you have around your land.
As humans have moved further from nature, we have become more dependent on civilization and have given up much of our autonomy. I want to educate people on the bounties of nature, with the goal of creating environmental awareness, self reliance, and respect for the natural world. I believe if everybody were aware of the food and medicine that lies in natural areas around us, that we would have more respect for nature and a deeper connection to our surroundings. We also become less dependent on civilization and more able to provide for ourselves and our loved ones. The world is in crisis, and we are losing species every day to overdevelopment, overharvesting, and pollution. It is an important time to be in touch with these natural rhythms.
