Not only will you be primed to dress your salad and fill your snack bag with local native plants, but learning to forage will make your forays into nature richer as you tune in to the land around you.

As the perfect companion to this immersive class, this new book will serve as a continuous guide to identifying, preparing and appreciating the wild bounty of native plants throughout Texas.
