WNC Wild Harvest Organizational Meeting

April 21, 2011
2:00 - 4:00 PM
Mountain Horticultural Crops Research & Extension Center
455 Research Drive, Mills River, NC

Do you harvest native plants for income? Do you own land that grows native plants well and wonder if income from them is feasible? Want to be part of a network that locates and markets native forest foods, sustainably? Are you interested in learning from trained wild harvesters?

A group of wild harvesters and foragers called Wild Harvest WNC are forming a collaborative marketing network to promote and expand the market for wild food products.

Purposes of the meeting are to organize as a group and develop a network of interested parties; to develop a marketing strategy for sustainably harvested wild foods; to increase the varieties and volumes of products; to expand the market locally and regionally; to involve landowners who will allow wild harvesting; and to discuss ethical and sustainable harvesting techniques and pertinent regulations.

For more information please call Sue Brown or Ed Mayer at 828.505.1080 or email at ednsue74@earthlink.net. No registration fee. Light snacks provided.
