Jenna Rozelle-Darcy is an outdoor enthusiast, born and raised in Maine. She makes her living as a forager, supplying wild edible, medicinal, and utilitarian plants to people and businesses. She offers classes for individuals or groups who want to learn how to safely and ethically incorporate wild foods into their lives. Beyond food, she is focused on fostering relationships between people and their local landscape, aiming to erase that imaginary line between human and environment.
