West Coast Wild Harvest

West Coast Wild Harvest is the first magazine published by the Wild Harvest Network and covers the Pacific Northwest region from SE Alaska down the coast along British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon. There are two issues published per year, Spring/Summer (March 1) and Fall/Winter (September 1) dealing with different topics in foraging and wild foods. We work with a number of chefs, mixologists, First Nations experts, and ethnobotanists to bring a number of unique recipes showing you, our readers, how you can incorporate wild foods into your daily diet and tips for identifying and sustainably harvesting the wild foods around you.
