Foraging for the future.

Something brought me here. It's been a bit of a rocky road to be honest, yet here I sit. So much gratitude and knowing that I am here to learn and work.

I want so much to do right by this land. This space I get to call home. The creatures that live here too. And the amazing variety of plant life; trees, berries, flowers, fruits, fungi, mosses, grasses, and ferns!

I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to foraging. I can recognize many garden plants, but the nuance of plants growing in the wild is something I want to dig deeper into.

For my birthday this year a good friend asked me what I wanted. I hate to ask for gifts but I think I may have a serious book addiction. I shared with her a link for a book called the Lost Art of Reading Natures Signs.

She also sent me some other books about foraging in the midwest and I stocked up on a few of my own. Some people call me the librarian. We've got some great books around here and I hope you'll stop by the Little Free Library the next time you visit.

Feel free to get in touch if you're looking for a specific kind of book to check out during your visit. MorningStar's Library - care of Julie and Elise - houses over 1000 books and I have a small collection of my own. I'd love to know what you're reading!

Speaking of nature and the knowledge she possesses for us, one of my goals for this summer is to dive into learning as much about the species here on the land that I can. Do you have knowledge of native plants here in Michigan? Would you like to come check out what we have to offer? Are you interested in learning more about foraging and plant identification?

I'd love to invite you to join us on the land for some fun and educational foraging expeditions! Fill out this form and let me know more about your interest and I'll share more once we have something in the works.

Check out our instagram for some of my favorite foraging accounts in the stories and let's connect!

Sending much love and looking forward!
