Region Covered in this Course

This course covers useful plants found on the Coastal Plain(shown in green), a unique environment with many native plant species that don’t grow anywhere else in the world! Narrowing down our coverage to this ultra-specific region ensures that nearly every plant we talk about will grow in your area! If you live in the green area on the map, this course was made for you!

Here's What You'll Learn in this Program:

  • How to identify and harvest edible plants found in the fields, forests, and swamps of the Deep South!

  • Fear of eating the wrong plant is one of the main reasons people don't get into foraging. In this course we'll take a detailed look at the step-by-step process expert foragers use to completely avoid toxic lookalikes so you can know with absolute certainty you're eating the right plant!

  • The top edible trees and shrubs for homesteading and preparedness.

  • A handful of common medicinal plants that can treat everyday ailments like colds, coughs, seasonal allergies, arthritis, insomnia, stress, chronic fatigue, etc.

  • Common edible lawn and garden weeds you can find right in your own landscape! After taking this course, you'll never see "weeds" the same way again!

  • And much, much more...
