Native Plants of the Tallgrass Prairie

 Forager's Harvest Website

Our mission is to promote foraging – the pastime of responsibly harvesting and utilizing wild food - by providing knowledge. We do this through articles, publications, classes, workshops, presentations, and consulting. At Forager’s Harvest we look at wild food from many angles of interest: health and nutrition, gourmet cooking, wilderness survival, thrift, self-reliance.
