Product Description

The Forager’s Harvest DVD Set includes two discs covering all the plants discussed in my first book. The footage was shot by Brian Pierce over the course of three years as he accompanied me on foraging adventures. Through hundreds of hours of editing, organizing, re-shooting, and planning in order to optimize the usefulness of the video to viewers, Brian created excellent DVDs that are both informative and fun. The entire production is narrated by me (Samuel Thayer) and provides ample ammunition for those who wish to make fun of my mannerisms, hairstyle, and especially, my attire choices. It also contains real-life footage of gathering and eating from the wild. In it, we interrupt normal foraging antics to cover the bases regarding each plant: identification, where to find it, what stage to harvest it in, what parts to collect, how to get them, and how to use them.If you are a forager who prefers watching film to reading, or if you just want to augment the descriptions and explanation offered in The Forager’s Harvest, this video is for you. If you want to see what tangled clumps of hopniss vines and Siberian elms loaded with green seeds look like in real live action, they’re here. If you want to see the process of harvesting wild rice from a ripe bed, then parching, dancing, and winnowing it, it’s on film here. This footage captures the abundance, surprise, bounty, beauty, blind luck, mosquitoes, wood ticks, and occasional frustrations of wild food gathering in all kinds of settings around the Midwest, from wilderness lakes and hardwood forests to backyards and empty lots.

I highly recommend this DVD set to go along with your copy of The Forager's Harvest book, this is the best plant DVD I have seen on actual foraging of plants.
