Full Moon Foraging

Dear wanderer, Welcome to our site. This site is dedicated to humans with an urge to rekindle their relationship with Mother Earth. This site is to be utilized as a reference guide for plants and mushrooms found in our area, New England. I hope that you find this guide useful. Initially, I created this site for my own needs. While adventuring with my partner, the love of my life, I realized the wealth of plant and fungi information I discovered overwhelmed me. I needed to start documenting and compiling this information into a single place. As I believe the value which these plants and fungi harbor to exist as a quality unbound by ownership, existing freely upon the landscape, I chose to honor this truth by allowing public access to this wealth of knowledge, free of charge. Thanks for visiting this site. May you find what calls to you, here or in the forest. With the utmost sincerity, Christopher
