Wildcrafting-the practice of collecting plant materials in their natural habitat for food, medicine, and craft. Harvesting things as moss, ginseng and other medicinals, natural dyes, mushrooms, wildflower seeds, berries, landscaping plants,stones and saps such as maple or pine. Not just found in the countryside, there are “wild” places in cities and in one’s own backyard. Many landscaping plants and trees have fruit that goes to waste every year. Crabapple and quince are just two examples. In your neighborhood may be native persimmons, walnuts, blackberries, dandelions and wild roses.
