Wildcrafting is the ancient practice of collecting plant
materials in their natural environment for nourishment, medicine,
or craft. Prior to the invention of agriculture, people would
harvest items from nature to sustain their families.
In contemporary times, people still practice wildcrafting by
harvesting moss, ginseng, berries, roots, herbs, and mushrooms
from either the wilderness or wherever they might be found.
Endangered species are taken into consideration and care is taken
to ensure that there is enough supply.
