  1. I am interested on joining a foraging walk for mushrooms. I did this when I was a child with my dad and would very much enjoy doing it again. I still would be considered a novice and need direction on identifying how to select edible from non edible.

  2. Debbie,
    I see you left this post last fall and no one seems to have replied. I am relatively new to New Hampshire and am just perusing the web trying to connect with other folks who like to forage, both for mushrooms or other wild edibles. I am not an expert either.
    One thing I often collect in the Spring is wild nettles, but I haven’t been able to find any around here,
    Where are you located?
    Please let me know if you’ve connected with others. I reallly don’t want to pay a ton of money- would rather learn from each other.

    1. Hi Laura-

      I, too, am interested in exploring some classes or experiences foraging with others. Where are you in NH? I’m in Central NH near Lake Sunapee and hope to find others with common interests in this area.

        Just came across when listening about Nettles. Do you have Nettles now. Would love to learn more from someone who is knowledgeable.
        Thank you.
