A Field Reference and Foraging Tool

Foraging is an art that's all but lost in today's modern society, but it can make a huge difference in your life. A foraging tool like this bandana is meant to give a person power over their situation, leading to purpose, and the ability to self-aid and self-rescue.

The Foraging Bandana was designed in cooperation with some of the finest foraging instructors. It lists the 12 most common plants/fungus of North America, including their common and scientific names. The field uses of all 12 plants/fungus are listed using part indicator icons on each plant illustration. The bandana also includes the ”5 Steps of Identifying Edible Plants” by Samuel Thayer and ”Rules and Ethics of Foraging” by Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen. 

We designed this bandana to act as a learning primer, field aid, and emergency reference. For neophytes, this bandana serves as a fun, stepping-stone educational tool. For more experienced foragers, this bandana should encourage impromptu foraging, help in sharing the passion of foraging with others, demonstrate alignment with the foraging lifestyle, and help promote awareness of continued education in this field.

We worked with experts, Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen and Dr. Nicole Apelian to choose plants based on the following criteria:

  • Abundance in USA

  • Ease of Identification

  • Few or no poisonous look-alikes

  • Ability to represent on a bandana

  • Ease to process into its usable form

Wild survival plants kerchief

IU always carry a kerchief that can be useful in a number of circumstances. This is a well-made, practical guide to several common wild plants useful for survival food or medicine. I also have Ms. Apelian's book, from which this information came; it's an even better, more extensive adjunct survival tool.

Great piece of portable intel

Forage to yours hearts content, but remember, not everything edible is great tasting. They will sustain you, maybe not to yours liking, but you will live.
