Foraging Calendar

Wild edible plants are delightfully in season for most of the year. To help you plan your foraging menus, we put together this foraging calendar of a small selection of our favorites from the book that are easy to find through most of North America and beyond. We will change the calendar four times a year: early spring, spring, summer and autumn-winter.
