Before I share this week’s video with you, I wanted to provide a quick update regarding the online mushroom foraging video course. If you’re unaware, I’ve been very busy creating an extensive course designed to teach the necessary skills involved in confidently and successfully foraging wild mushrooms through every season. The entire course will be available online, and it will feature over 60 brand new instructional videos with guided lessons on:
- Mushroom ecology
- Mushroom biology
- Fungal taxonomy
- Edible mushrooms
- Poisonous mushrooms
- Medicinal mushrooms and extraction techniques
- Cooking wild mushrooms
- Mushroom hunting resources
… and lots more.
This project has been a labor of intense love for the past two years and I’m really excited to share it with you! Registration is set to be open early May, and the best way to stay up-to-date with the release of this course is to continue checking these emails. Updates will also be posted to the Learn Your Land website shortly.
And now on to this week’s video!
During a recent walk through the woods, I was happy to unexpectedly see a particular medicinal plant whose winter buds and twigs I enjoy. Upon closer inspection, I realized that not all the buds and twigs in front of me belonged to this medicinal species.
Instead, many shoots around my desired plant actually belonged to a poisonous species.
Luckily, I left the woods unscathed, though I thought I’d film the situation for anyone interested in safely foraging wild medicinal plants.
Do you recognize this poisonous plant? Check out the brand new video to learn more!
I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Sam Sycamore from the Good Life Revival Podcast. In this interview, we talk about the intersection of health and nature connection, the benefits of knowing how to read the land, and lots more! You can listen and download the interview here.
