Be Safe:  Know Your Herbs

Be sure to positively identify the wild food you intend to ingest prior to harvesting it.   Please be respectful when wild crafting herbs.  The United Plant Savers has wonderful guidelines for maintaining our precious green gifts.  There are numerous well trusted providers who supply organic herbs. If  you don’t already grow your own herbs, start small, research, and give gardening a try!

Many of the plants listed below may be seen in the Virtual Plant Walk.  Take a stroll to get to know them!
