There was a time when wild plant gathering was the natural way to fortify our Herb supplies. Lately, we have been more circumspect about what we gather - conscientiously avoiding those plants that are endangered or at risk of becoming endangered. The idea of wild crafting connoted that we are gathering on land that we do not own. Strong disagreements have arisen about harvesting Ginseng and other popular herbs such as Ramps.
If you Wild craft, please observe the following:
* Be conscientious about gathering plants that are endangered or at risk. * Ask permission if you are not on your own land. * Gather at least 25 feet from roadways or where plants may have been sprayed. *
