Introduction to Wildcrafting–Part II
This class features many plants that not were not available at the last foraging class.
Join Jenna Rozelle and April O’Keefe to learn about the practice and ethics of wildcrafting for food and medicine. This time we’ll walk through a property on the east side of Kittery. Jenna will discuss the basics of foraging and identify the edible and medicinal plants that grow in the area. We’ll learn how to ensure plant survival and habitat for future generations.
Jenna is a professional forager who provides fresh wild ingredients for several top chefs and small craft breweries on the Seacoast. April O’Keefe is a practicing herbalist and owner of AOK Herbals in Kittery.

Wildcrafting is the practice of harvesting plants from their natural, or “wild” habitat, for food or medicinal purposes. It applies to uncultivated plants wherever they may be found, and is not necessarily limited to wilderness areas. Ethical considerations are often involved, such as protecting endangered species.
