Are you ready to start a Foragable Community?

Who are You?

Do you own a business engaging the regional food system?  Are you an activist working to support regional foodways?  Do you enjoy activating and engaging others?  Catalysts share their knowledge and insight about the natural features of their area with locals and visitors, serving as stewards of both the local human and natural communities.  

How Can We Help?

We can provide funding to help you start a foragable community in your area and the support you need to develop community partnerships. We work directly with community catalysts to help you develop specific materials and design events that increase the public’s understanding and appreciation of  the local foodways in your region.
