A New Focus for the Foraging Family

Foraging Family is back after a long hiatus. The promise of a new growing season is in the air. And we're excited to make the most of it. We've got a bunch of new ideas (and some old ones) for where we'd like to go this year.

What's New

  1. Regular Weekend Posting--We're committed to posting new content every weekend. Look for a new post every Friday or Saturday. We'll post more often if we can.

  2. New Yearly Theme--"One year. One family. One hundred wild food adventures." Our objective for this year is to expand beyond our study of a collector's list of wild edible plants, or list of recipes. We want to include more outdoor cooking skills (especially of wild foods), more outdoor living, and more traipsing through the woods--all of it focused on wild food as a means of living independently in the wild.

  3. New Tagline--To convey our new emphasis on wild food as a key component of living wildly, independently, and self-sufficiently, we've adopted a new tagline--"Adventures in Food and Freedom". (More on this in a future post.)

What's Staying the Same

  1. Foraging--Foraging for wild foods is still at the heart of our blog, especially wild plants.

  2. Family--We're still committed to sharing our individual family's adventures, especially as our daughter grows into a forager herself. We hope to share some of our thoughts, hopes, and fears of sharing our foraging passion with her.

  3. Fun--We want to be informative, but we also want to be entertaining. Our recipe: Mix equal parts field guide, cookbook, and adventure story. Stir vigorously. Enjoy right away and same some for later. Leftovers are always the best.


  1. Yay! Looking forward to it, I really enjoy your blog :)
