Foraging Friday: Year-long Course

The latest from author and forager, Max Gordon

Here is your weekly dose of Foraging Friday, a list of what I’m pondering and exploring. I hope you’ve had a great week! Thank you for supporting my work.

Check out our month-long & year-long survival courses now.


What i’m researching

The following is an excerpt from a 2004 paper called “Nature vs. nurture: managing relationships between forests, agroforestry and wild biodiversity”.

“In western culture, ‘nature’ is often considered to be that which operates independently of people, and a major focus of development has been to bring nature under greater human control…

Despite the dominance of this view of nature, work in ecology, paleontology, forestry, history, archaeology, anthropology, and ethics is calling into question the separation of people from nature, supporting instead the age old view of many cultures that people are part of nature and that the biodiversity ”

Foraging Friday: Survival-Skills 102

The latest from author and forager, Max Gordon

Here is your weekly dose of Foraging Friday, a list of what I’m pondering and exploring. I hope you’ve had a great week! Thank you for supporting my work.

Check out my new 1-month and 6-month long courses for survival skills in south Florida, here!

What i’m researching

The following is an excerpt from a 2009 paper called “The plant macro-remains from the Iceman site (Tisenjoch, Italian-Austrian boader, eastern Alps): new results on the glacier mummy’s environment”

“The Iceman ‘‘O¨ tzi’’ represents the unique find of a perfectly preserved corpse dating back to the late Neolithic. Radiocarbon data (3370–3100 cal B.C.; see Bonani et al. 1994; Hedges et al. 1992; Kutschera 2002) suggest that he was a contemporary of the Cham and Horgen cultures north of the Alps (Jacomet 2006).

Analysis of more than 40,000 plant remains from the find site of the Tyrolean Iceman has yielded plants from a great variety of ecosystems from different altitudes, and also from many taxonomic groups.

The spectrum of identified cultivated Neolithic plants has now been extended by the cereal cf. Panicum miliaceum, as well as by the two oilseeds Papaver somniferum and Linum usitatissimum, so far the oldest finds in the Eastern Alps.”

A novel about Ötzi was recently published here, and i’ve enjoyed it.

What i’m researching

The following is an excerpt from a 2005 paper called “An ecological and historical review of bracken (Pteridium esculentum) in New Zealand, and its cultural significance”.

“New Zealand bracken (Pteridium esculentum) belongs to a group of closely related fern species of near global extent. Pteridium species worldwide are aggressive, highly productive, seral plants, functionally more akin to shrubs than ferns…

Although Maori relied on bracken rhizome starch as a major element of their diet, food-quality rhizomes were obtained only on deep, moderately fertile soils. The dominance of bracken over very large areas was mainly a result of burning to create open landscapes for access and ease of travel.” –

Foraging Friday: Free Classes in FL!

The latest from author and forager, Max Gordon, 01/09/2023

Here is your weekly dose of Foraging Friday, a list of what I’m pondering and exploring. I hope you’re having a great holiday season! Thank you for supporting my work. Please consider checking out these seasonal products for you are your family:

1
Homebiotic: household products that protect your home
2) Wildingshoes: minimal shoes that naturally strengthen feet

On January 7th, and on January 14th, i’ll be hosting free survival skills seminars in Jupiter and Boca Raton, Florida.

What i’m researching

The following is an excerpt from a paper by Lee A. Newsom and C. Margaret Scarry called “Homegardens and Mangrove Swamps: Pineland Archaeobotanical Research”

“Spanish accounts of Calusa Indians along the southwest Florida coast depict large human populations reliant on extensive maritime resources and a variety of wild plant foods and materials. Agriculture did not appear to be part of Calusa adaptations to the rich coastal environment…

The enigma to which Marquardt alludes is that while almost all the known people who achieve such complexity are agriculturists—dependent for subsistence on one or more staple crops and generally able to produce and distribute a surplus—the Calusa instead are described as a complex, tributary, fisher-gatherer-hunter society (Marquardt 1987, 1988, 1992d).

By the time of Spanish contact, the Calusa exerted influence over most of southern Florida, yet based on historical and archaeological data it appears the Calusa and other south Florida groups raised no crops”

What i’m researching

The following is an excerpt from a 2015 paper by Michael Rampino called “Volcanic winter in the Garden of Eden: The Toba supereruption and the late Pleistocene human population crash”

“The Toba eruption (ca. 73,500 B.P., Indonesia) was the largest explosive eruption of the last few hundred thousand years…

Genetic studies indicate that sometime prior to ca. 60,000 yr ago humans suffered a severe population bottleneck (possibly only 3,000–10,000 individuals), followed eventually by rapid population increase, technological innovations, and migrations.

The climatic effects of the paroxysmal Toba eruption could have caused the bottleneck, and the event might have been a catalyst for the technological innovations and migrations that followed.”
