People have been foraging for centuries, yet interestingly enough the big box stores and mass chains of grocery outlets have made foraging all but a thing of the past. That, however, has left endless opportunities for those looking to break away from the rat race and live off the fat of the land.
foraging is a great way to get out and enjoy nature, get some exercise and add some healthy food to your preserves.
Oregon is renowned for its diverse wild vegetation with endless berries, mushrooms, wild grown spices, vegetables like wild asparagus and seaside delights such as kelp and seaweed.
