    Definitely something I want to do. IMHO this is one of the most valuable skills you can have.
    The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.

    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is you are stupid, and make bad decisions.

      It always been my practice to learn as much as I could from the local community because they are the folks who live there and their entire wellbeing are so connected to the local environment thus making them the best source for information and practical application of the local plant's, medicinal herbs, venom & poison application, etc. However in general I was trained by an instructor who himself come from hunter-gatherer community

        I reread this thread and can give one more piece of advice.

        ALMOST every county has some type of agriculture adviser or agent that not only has local knowledge of what plants are usable in the local area but can give advice about land management, soil testing, and what grows well in the local area.
