Although I can identify and harvest the basics: nettles, morels, horsetail, ramps, persimmons, pawpaw, elderberry etc, I would really like to expand my knowledge and foraging for food. I have grown oysters but still do not feel confident identifying them in the wild. Please recommend youtube videos, downloadable PDFs, persons to contact for workshops and books to help with my wild edibles education.
...and then there are books by StevenFoster/James Duke. We have Eastern/Central Medicinal Plants and it is excellent and useful in the Ozarks. Steven Foster is on facebook also (lives in the Ozarks) and you can 'follow' him.
Author, photographer, consultant and lecturer, with over 44 years experience in botanicals & herbs.
Beautiful beautiful plant, etc photography with ID.
Billy Joe Tatum's Wild Foods Field Guide and Cookbook also. She was quite local to us and a wonderful forager.
The Ozark Folk Center has workshops certain times of year for herbs, check out their website in Mountain View.
