About the Ticket Supplier: The Foraging Society

The Foraging Society's mission is to provide support for foragers and to protect and enhance the ecological health of our foodsheds. We aim to ensure that through education, research, and fun, foraging can become something that not only reconnects us to the natural world, but is regenerative to the environment. May wild things flourish!

Our goals include:

- To educate the public on foraging, botany, land stewardship, sustainability

- To provide a certification for foragers, to ensure safe, responsible, and sustainable harvesting practices are utilized.

- To provide a venue for foragers to get together and form local groups

- To work with parks and land managers to use foraging as a control for plants considered to be invasive

- To research and develop foraging strategies that facilitate the regeneration of native plant species

- To provide access to land for foragers and the establishment of a foraging park

The Foraging Society is a non-profit organization (incorporation in process). Our 501 (c) 3, tax exempt status is still many months away.
