My buddy luke and I are preparing for a full paleo summer, where we will go out with only food and tools we’ve wild harvested. In prep for this, we’ve been doing a lot of wild harvesting. So I went out with my friend Steve to harvest walnuts that look like tennis balls. It’s hard to find them under the trees but mic easier to find them in squirrel middens!!! (Like stealing walnuts from a squirrel). I filled a couple of bags and went to work, husking them, and turning my hands black. They are now drying in my laundry room, and are soon ready to crack.
Born and raised in Montreal, as a teenager I was turned on to wilderness survival skills. Since then, I have attended the Tom Brown Jr. Tracker School, as well as the Wilderness Awareness School in Duvall, WA, where I Participated in their year long residential program, as well as their second year teaching apprenticeship, and tracking intensive. I have now returned home, eager to share my passions for wild foods and wild crafts in the city.
