While his everyday job is working Safety and Security for City Market/Onion River Co-Op, he can frequently be found in the local forests and fields gathering food, medicine, and raw materials for his apothecary and kitchen. He and Eric talk about what attracted him to wildcrafting, how wildcrafting can anchor our sense of place, the risks associated with commercializing wild plants, and regulating the take of wild plants as public trusts much like states do wild game animals, among other things.
