Foraging with Google Maps

Autumn is a great time to go foraging for wild berries and fruits. is a collaborative Google Map that wants to show the best locations to forage for edible plants in your area. The aim of the map is to provide a graphic illustration of the abundance of useful wild plants, and offer a way for people to reconnect with their food, craft, and nature.

Currently the map has a few foraging locations in the UK but, as this is a user contributed map, it will improve with more registered users. The map markers for each location reveal what edible plant is available and lists the medicinal and edible uses of the plant.
