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.
