Foraging is an art that's all but lost in today's modern society but can make a huge difference in your life. Foraging for medicine, vitamins, and calories can provide real life-saving benefits beyond sustenance.

This bandana acts as a learning primer, field aid, and emergency reference. As you learn to identify plants and which of their parts to use (www.foragingtexas.com is a great place to start) this bandana will be your memory jog while in the field.

Wazoo worked with experts to choose plants based on the following criteria:

  • Abundance in USA

  • Ease of Identification

  • Few or no poisonous look-alikes

  • Ability to represent on bandana

  • Ease to process into its usable form  

For neophytes, this bandana serves as a fun stepping-stone educational tool. For more experienced foragers, the product will encourage impromptu foraging, help share the passion of foraging with others, demonstrate their alignment with the foraging lifestyle, and help promote top-of-mind awareness to continue education in the field.
