With a focus on exploration and wellbeing, this publication was crafted to facilitate connectivity through our natural surroundings and the food we eat. 

The goal of GATHER is to unpack the complexities of foraging for wild foods by focusing on 25 plants that grow around hiking trails and backcountry locales in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. 

From trail-side snacks to simple cooked foods, GATHER enables those who love the outdoors to explore and sample what Mother Nature has to offer in our fertile neck of the woods.

We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.
