Foraging Through the Seasons

Presented by Vickie Shufer

Vickie Shufer is a naturalist, forager, and publisher in Virginia Beach where in 1979 she began her career as a Naturalist/Interpreter for Virginia State Parks. She works with a number of organizations developing programs and leading field trips on edible and medicinal plants. She is the editor and publisher of The Wild Foods Forum newsletter, and she recently published Everything Guide to Foraging, an in-depth guide to identifying, harvesting, and cooking nature’s wild fruits and vegetables.
