Please go to www.WildFoodies.org for general information, reference material, related meetups, and local experts on foraging and wild edibles. Our Informational Handout has some important comments and cautions - http://www.wildfoodies.org/WildFoodiesHando.... Also, note that we highly recommend the latest edition of "Edible Wild Plants, A North American Field Guide, by Thomas S. Elias and Peter A. Dykeman" as your best all-around source of information. Also, "PLANTS FOR A FUTURE" - http://www.pfaf.org/ - great search feature / large data base. However, no one source has everything, so go to www.WildFoodies.org for more info.
Regarding your "Member Profile", please put any background you have that people may be interested in, at the beginning of your profile. In particular, note any background or experience in wild foods, botany, ethnobotony, medicinal plants, medicine, primitive skills, insects, hobbies, degrees, work experience, etc. If you host a meetup event, it's helpful for others to know more about your background. And that info appears just under your photo. So, lead with your background first. And don't be shy! We put the wild into Wild Foodies!
Also, please use both your first and last name, if that's not a problem for you. We're getting multiple same first names, like David, and often can't tell one from the other. Munch On!
