Late summer and fall are the time for picking blueberries, hunting for mushrooms, and getting
ready for winter. Gathering edible berries and plants has many benefits besides their great
taste. Jackie Qataliña, Tony Perelli, and Dana Diehl join host Paul Twardock to discuss what

emotional benefits of foraging, and ethical considerations.
