What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in heading outdoors for walks and hikes aimed at correctly identifying, legally harvesting, cooking, and eating a variety of interesting edible plants that grow in the Seattle area!

We save our resources at https://goo.gl/cimFTc for anyone who wants to reference them.

Kindly note that by being part of this group, you agree that you are personally responsible for anything you harvest and consume -- no group organizers or anyone who we work with that provides information during activities are responsible for your personal choices.

Register at https://catalyst.uw.edu/webq/survey/jolynm/389048 "Food for Thought, Food for Life" (trailer: http://foodforthoughtfilm.com) Explaining the downsides of current agribusiness practices, this film also introduces us to farmers, chefs, researchers, educators, and advocates who are providing solutions. The film is both poetic and practical; its powerful examination of the connections between our planet and our well-being is accompanied by specific strategies that protect both. After the film, UW presentation facilitators will welcome the Executive Director of the Tilth Alliance to provide commentary and answer your questions.
