Do you appreciate what foragers do ? Can you help to support us and tell our story ?
Olivier Matthon (@mycorhizoli and Michael Reis are currently working on a documentary film about wild mushroom pickers. Up On The Mountain aims to raise awareness of the people who harvest wild mushrooms and the joys and challenges they face in order to provide this sustainable resource to restaurants and food suppliers around the world. Your support of this film will help ensure that consumers value their hard work and their rights as workers. Join the filmmakers in amplifying the voices of the people we care about.
They are currently searching for Associate Producers ($1,000 donation) and Executive Producers ($2,000 donation or more). Your name (or the name of your restaurant and its logo) will be highlighted in the film credits and on our website as an essential contributor to its realization.

Staghorn Sumac (Rhus typhina)
These fuzzy red berry clusters are still ripening.
They have no taste now, but later this summer they'll make the most refreshing wild lemonade!
More on this delicious wild edible later in the season... I promise!

Red elderberry is a native to North America, a beauty to stand out in the hard raining day🐼 Ontario's native plant red elderberry is looking great. The only edible part of the plant is the ripen berries after heat processing🐼 #redelderberry#sambucus#接骨木#sambucusracemosa#接骨木果#红果接骨木

🍒 🍒 🍒 It's funny when foraging for something how you look and look for something and then once you find it, you're so cued in to it that it's suddenly everywhere 🍒 🍒 🍒 I've had my eye on a few cherry trees over the past month watching them slowly get darker and riper... i managed to pick a few today before the birds got them all 🙌

An ancient healing secret first referenced in writing during the Han Dynasty in 206 BC, pine pollen has a long history of medicinal use. Tree medicine, and specifically pine pollen, is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet, and it happens to grow in many of our backyards or neighborhoods. There are so many benefits including high amounts of Vitamins A & B, Carotene, B1, B2, B3, B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, a ton of minerals from potassium to zinc.
Pine pollen contains over twenty amino acids and all eight of the essential amino acids making it a complete protein. Maybe one of the most interesting health benefits is that it is considered an androgen. This means that it has the ability to raise testosterone levels because it is a naturally occurring form of testosterone. Pine pollen is adaptogenic, meaning it will assist with what is needed in the body, both for men and women, raising the testosterone levels in blood and balancing the ratio of androgens to estrogen. This means more energy and vitality!
One of my mentors, the herbalist and author Stephen Buhner, wrote a book on the benefits of pine pollen, sharing that its similarity to ginseng in some of its actions, and its status as, perhaps, the premier phytoandrogen on the planet, should have been recognized long before now as the powerful medicinal that it is. So let’s give it more attention!
What an amazing medicine available right in our backyard! Have you ever used or harvested pine pollen?
Oh man! I've been eating #Lychee (#LitchiChinensis ) like a fiend lately! With a season that only lasts a few weeks, you have to get them while you can! Fortunately for me I've been tapped into the tropical fruit scene here on the southern side of Florida for about 8 years now. Highly prized fruits like the #litchi can be hard to come by. 🤤
Did you know that the lychee is the sole member of its genus? Pretty rad huh!? Oh and that it's a member of the #soapberry family? But I can guarantee this fruit tastes nothing like soap! It does have fragrant floral notes to it but it's suuuuper sweet and juicy!
