CONNECTING WITH THE EARTH: Foraging for Wild Plants and Herbs with Foraging Expert Heather Flournoy

Motivation, inspiration, and passion are key to what makes a successful green changemaker. How do they get and keep these qualities? I’m sure it’s different for everyone, but I feel that we really need to connect with the earth in order to foster a deep caring for her. Once we do this, the motivation to take care of the planet will be something that simply becomes a part of our behavior. It will no longer be something that we do only on Saturdays or on recycling day, but will become part of the way in which we make our daily decisions on purchasing and using energy, how we eat, and even how we treat our common ailments.

There are so many ways to make this shift in consciousness, but I’d like to focus on getting to know the plant life around us, and how this has inspired me to learn more, and motivate me to become an environmentalist (which, by the way, I still find a little difficult to write because of all of the years of it being a ‘bad’ label!). Watch the video posted below on how to get started with foraging for wild foods and herbs in your own backyard!

Join a foraging workshop in your area this weekend. Go to http://www.WildmanSteveBrill.com and click on the calendar. Or visit the Katonah Green Calendar on the left-hand side of the blog.

  1. Okay, #1- beautiful writing!
    #2- I like to pick up trash when on walks, and bike to my friends's houses instead of making you drive me.
