About

The Hungry Forager was established by George Barnett in early April, 2020. As George studied trees, fungi, plants and ecology over the previous four years, he was always foraging in his free time. That love of familiarity, seasonality and stewardship always seemed like the best path for him. He believes the connection of human and nature are bonded beautifully in the act of foraging, it’s both exciting and relaxing, both logical and primal. Naturally, his son Levi was a trail companion for most of his early foray hikes so they learned the seasons of native, invasive , medicinal, edible and poisonous plants together. Currently his partner Samantha has joined George with a growing interest in foraging and specializes in herbalism practices. Together they make up a small household of people who love nature, spending most of their time in the outdoors and love sharing it with others. The Hungry Forager provides wild food education, wild food consultation with landowners and sells seasonal wildcrafted and wild harvested products. The Hungry Forager is currently based out of Louisville, Kentucky.
