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.
