Foraging for Berries

On a recent family trip to the Rockies, the boys had their first foraging experience. Foraging is a great way to get out and enjoy each other’s company, nature, and if you find some treasure along the way its that much more rewarding. It really is about the simple things in life and felt like a perfect morning. Wild raspberries are in season and they were as far as the eye could see. Every time he came across a bigger bush Hudson would yell,” Mom come look at this bush!” When kids make a connection on where their food comes from they are more likely to eat it and get excited about trying new things. Always make sure you’re knowledgeable before you eat anything growing in the wild and watch for bears(they love berries too)!IMG_1918 (1).jpgIMG_1912.jpgIMG_1913.jpgIMG_1907.jpgIMG_1921.jpgIMG_1917.jpg
