Late Summer Family Foraging

3 thoughts on “Late Summer Family Foraging”

  1. New to your blog, so enjoying it. A day with family picking berries brings back lots of childhood memories for me. I live in the sub alpine just above the grasslands of British Columbia, a magical space. Foraging is easy on my land, we have saskatoons, thimble berries, oregon grape, raspberries, wild rose hips ( I am harvesting now as we had a frost last night), false solomon seal, firs tips, and on and on. I forage to make wild yeast, medicine and for ceremony. I am blessed to live on unceded territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc, and sit at the knee of an elder medicine carrier who loves to share her knowledge. Chokecherry is abundant right now on the river, the bears are loving it. So much is out there. Keep looking, you will be rewarded.

    1. I so appreciate your writing here. Thank you for sharing a bit about your part of our beautiful country. My husband and children and I had the pleasure on Sunday of going on a medicine walk with an elder who has four decades of experience in the field of Mi’kmaq plant and tree medicines and in Native medicines. He took us through the old growth forest on the land where he grew up and where he still lives. It is so true that the more you learn, the less you know. I have even more respect for wild medicine than before, and a deepened interest.
