Urban Forager 

Around seven years ago, David Craft expressed an interest in learning about wild edibles. Unsuspectedly, two different friends of his ended up buying him a foraging book, and he’s been infatuated ever since. He signed up for foraging classes and thoroughly practiced the craft, learning how to harvest and cook edible plants that grow throughout Boston and the nearby area. Since becoming an expert, David has been featured on NPR and regularly gives lectures and lessons on the subject.
