Pacific Northwest Foraging Starter Handbook

Earth was not built for six billion people, all running around and being passionate about things. The world was built for about two million people foraging for roots and grubs.

— Doug Coupland

Foraging is the earliest and most natural way of gathering edibles in human evolution.

Given the extensive natural gift in the PNW (Pacific Northwest), foraging wild edible fruits, berries, and plants become the most satisfying experience.

Humans have been foraging since the dawn of civilization. It was the primary means of sustenance for our prehistoric ancestors. Chances are, even you have foraged and probably did not realize that you were doing it.

Have you ever picked wild berries from a nearby park or plucked herbs from a neighborhood garden? Well, these are both instances of Foraging.
