I promise, I do NOT work for these folks!

But, I do love their concept, their enthusiasm, their approachability, and their efforts to get interested people to take the first step into many DIY projects. With that, I decided to give their Foraging Kit a try:

Quote Unearth the natural world’s bounty. Whether wildcrafting chanterelles, morels, ramps or chicory, the right tools are essential.

Foraging is tremendous fun. Few things compare to walking into the woods, a nearby park, or a pristine patch of green and collecting your next meal. With that said, not everything you find should be eaten or picked. Please forage responsibly and safely. Identify everything carefully with the help of a book, a good website or an experienced friend and make sure to leave enough behind for animals and future foragers.

What's Inside:



Mesh Bag: Collect mushrooms while leaving their spores behind for years of successful mushroom hunts to come.



Foraging Knife: sturdy foraging knife is essential. Ours is equipped with a rosewood handle, folding blade and natural fiber brush.



Canvas Collecting Bags: Keep your foraged goods neatly packed on any excursion with durable canvas bags in two handy sizes (6" & 12").



Sugaring Spile: The best pancakes are topped with your own homemade syrup. It all starts by collecting some maple or birch sap.


I almost didn't get this, thinking that it was more of a Back-East thing not really suited to my area; however, I finally decided to go for it. I remembered The Beautiful Mrs. Tas, growing up just a mere 100 miles away from me, talking about going mushroom-gathering with her grandfather, and I figured there must be some things around here that we can forage; mushrooms, berries, roots, rose hips...certainly others that I am not even thinking of. With that in mind, I should get some good usage out of most of the kit. There are no sugar maples around (that I know of), but I did some reading on birch species that can be tapped, and I believe we may have some in the area...it's worth a try!

Time to get out my old Boy Scout Book....
