"We are a twenty-seven-year-old foraging education company — the largest, to our knowledge, in the world. We are based in Asheville, North Carolina, in the center of The Appalachian/Blue Ridge Forest, one of the richest ecosystems outside of the tropics on Earth.
No Taste Like Home is about uncovering the Garden of Eden all around us. Living “from land to mouth,” instead of scarcity, we see abundance. We move from fear to trust.
When we go back to nature, we go back to our own true nature as loving beings. We welcome the world with open arms, and we find that it has been waiting for us all this time: for us to come home."
