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  

Designed in cooperation with:

Good quality

I ordered 3 of these. One for my daughter in law in FL and one for my youngest son in VA and one for my EDC bag. The size is bigger then usual and very pretty.

Cash Well Spent On a Cache Cap!

To date, I have indulged myself in two cache caps and the forging bandana. All great products. The hats are really well made too. Saw that noted on another review and have to agree. They are durable and will last.

Foraging bandana

The design and artwork on this is gorgeous and of course it’s very useful. I bought 3 for gifts for fellow foragers and 2 for me-an extra one-to just to frame.
