We are a community of foragers and friends gathering together and learning from each other in NY and NJ.

Our mission is to gather together as a community and have fun teaching, learning and practicing sustainable living through our wilderness adventures in our backyards and beyond.

Our Motto is "Gather Together".

We are fun, friendly, local, outdoors, sustainable, organic, wild, educational, teaching, healthy, healing, laughing, smiling, eating, creative, playful, nutritious and delicious. Gathering together with us is good for your soul ♥.

We offer memorable experiences of great food, fresh air and good company.

We schedule wild edibles walks and workshops on plant identification, harvesting, preparation, preservation, cooking, medicinal uses and dyes. We also schedule wilderness adventure workshops on primitive survival skills, such as emergency shelter building, fire making, trapping, cordage making, water purification, and hide tanning.

Our community of friends include foragers, mycologists, herbalists, hunters, anglers, permies, healers, farmers, foodies, survivalists, wild crafters, locavores, families, dreamers and more.

Check out our website and like our Facebook page for events and blogs about sustainable living.




We are an *active* group and expect all of our members to be active participants. While we do not limit our membership, our focus is quality, not quantity. If members are not active, they may be removed from the group.  Please also post a real photo of yourself so that we know you are not a lurker.

Thank you for your interest. We look forward to meeting you soon.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
