The Forager's Wild Edible & Herbal Plant Cards
I created the Forager's Wild Edible & Herbal Plant Cards as a way to share my love of the plants, inspire nature connection, and create health empowerment through foraging free and nutrient rich wild plants. These cards are meant to be an introduction or continuation on the journey of becoming familiar with these plants to dispel fear of the unknown and delve deeper into nature's gifts.
Each card has a photograph, captured by me in the field or forest, of a wild plant on the front. On the back, there is a description of the plant, including its English name, botanical name, family, identification characteristics, habitat, and edible and herbal benefits, with tips on harvesting and processing.
Though it's always best and easiest to learn directly from a person in the wild, we don't always have that option, just like when I was first learning about wild plants. These cards can help you start on the path of learning 27 of the most common wild edibles and herbs (in the central and eastern US), or reinforce what you may have already begun to learn. We can all use a little help sometimes.
The deck includes an information card telling you how to use the cards, and offering helpful hints about safe and sustainable foraging. It all comes in an unbleached cotton tea bag that's made in the USA. It's multipurpose: you can harvest some wild herbs and make tea, too!
