  1. It’s a shame that Arkansas (The NATURAL State) has no Wild Edibles Foraging Tours. Not to be a “Sour Stephen” but Arkansas really is one of the lamest states to live in. The state government should put some money into programs like that and make Arkansas better.

    1. I am in Arkansas and was looking for foregers to come and collect some of my over abundance of wild lettuce and plaintain. I thought surely we would have one! Wow!

  2. Maybe we need to start a program ourselves?!! I REALLY want to learn. We need someone who is willing to share their knowledge

  3. I’m new to Arkansas (moved here from the Washington coast a year ago), and have a dozen acres, mostly wooded. I’m pretty well versed in what’s edible and not on the West Coast, but out here, I am utterly clueless and what appears to be edible is often not. While Plant ID apps are great, they aren’t reliable, and I don’t want to feed my family or my future livestock something that will kill them.

    Obviously, I’m not qualified to lead any kind of educational excursions, but if there’s interest in creating a group, I’d be willing to put time into helping organize and run it.

  4. Please let me know if anyone gets a group together! I just moved to Conway from Hawaii and have been looking for a way to learn about the local wild food – And also to have a fun reason to get together with some likeminded people 🙂 Cheers!

  5. I’m near Hot Springs and would love to participate!
    Arkansas is wayyyy past due for this! I’m starting to wonder if stores are selling legit safe food anymore……

    Does anyone know what “poke salad” is? Is there a homeschooling course out there? Something?? Anything?!

  6. I am searching for ideas for our Garden Club starting back September 2024

    If we could gather a group interested & knowledgeable ,….. I would like to set a date to go
    Thats if theres anything to forage in Sept, Oct
