Five basic foraging rules:
  1. Never forage or eat anything you cannot positively identify as safe
  2. Never pick endangered plant species
  3. Always protect plants and nature
  4. Only pick as much as you need and never take all the plants where you forage
    (This will give them time to recover and multiply.
    By doing that, you will be able to return back and forage again next season)
  5. At all times be careful of poisonous plants, snakes and insects.

  6. Only forage in unrestricted areas or obtain permission from a landowner to forage.
