Although searching for, identifying and collecting food resources in the wild has gained far greater popularity in recent years, our distant ancestors relied on foraging as a way of life. Gathering wild food can compel a greater awareness of the natural world around us and turn our backyards into a kind of seasonal supermarket.
Shereen Siewert welcomes Wausau native Sam Thayer, an author, speaker and internationally recognized authority on edible wild plants for a discussion on foraging and its connection to conservation and sustainable food production systems. Now living near Superior, Thayer will share tips on how to safely forage for food and what to do with the freshly-grown seasonal produce found in the wild.
