As the autumn season winds down, it is the perfect time to begin foraging and digging roots. As the plants begin to draw their energies into the ground to store them for winter, we can begin to take advantage of this and dig them up to be used as tasty root vegetables or process and dry them for coffee, tea, and medicine. We'll explore which plants can be utilized in this way and demonstrate the process for taking them from root to beverage.
Beginners and experienced foragers are welcome.
