Pacific Northwest Foraging Starter Handbook

A Beginner's Guide with 6 Step-by-Step Methods to Identify, Harvest, Prepare, Preserve and Cook Wild Foods

About the Book

Earth was not built for six billion people, all running around and passionate about things. The world was built for about two million people foraging for roots and grubs.

— Doug Coupland

The act of Foraging is the earliest and most natural way of gathering edibles in human evolution.

Given the extensive natural gift in the PNW (Pacific Northwest), foraging wild edible fruits, berries, and plants become the most satisfying experience.

Humans have been foraging since the dawn of civilization. It was the primary means of sustenance for our prehistoric ancestors. Chances are, even you have foraged and probably did not realize that you were doing it.

Have you ever picked wild berries from a nearby park or plucked herbs from a neighborhood garden? Well, these are both instances of Foraging.

This book is a visual journey with:

★ Colored Interior

★ 75 + images

★ 18 edible plants in PNW

★ Recipes

If you are looking for a short, crisp, and visually pleasing account of all Foraging steps with respect to the PNW states, this is where you land!

The topics covered are:

  • The introduction & history of Foraging
  • Why Foraging- The Benefits
  • 6 Steps of Foraging
  • Identifying, Double Checking & Harvesting
  • Preparing, Preservation & Healthy Recipes

You can't simply head out into the woods without proper guidance, someone experienced. With the direction, support, and experience, you can quickly become a Pacific Northwest foraging pro.

So what are you waiting for?

Welcome to my profile!

Here's my story:

I am Business Consultant in my mid-thirties with a Bachelor's in Engineering & Master in Business Management.

I have worked in the areas of IT Advisory & Roadmap and Project Management for transformational projects. Currently, I am working with the public sector in the e-Governance space, trying to take the benefits of technology to the masses through innovation and customization.

This aspect of disruptive technology beyond regular discussions/implementation excites me. I am always looking for that case study in South America, Africa, or Asia, where the game's rules have been changed to solve the massive scale of the problem!

On the personal front, the last ten years have been a roller coaster ride managing my career and family. My elder son is seven years old, and the second one turned 2.

Besides Technology, I have been into Leather Crafting, wood crafting, and foraging for the last five years. It is a perfect hobby for my weekends, and I enjoy crafting beautiful gifts for my family and friends.

I have been working consistently and most importantly enjoying my current phase of life, career, and growth. With all the experience and renewed vigor, I will surely achieve my goals in a stipulated time frame. I decided to jot down my learning and experiences along the way and share it with you.

 Will See You Soon, Friend!
