WILD HARVEST
The foraging of foods which grow in the wild without cultivation or human assistance

THE FORAGER
Tyler collects wild seasonal foods for restaurants and chefs across North America. We agree to meet one morning at 9AM so he can show me the bull kelp harvest. I’m two hours late (border problems) so by the time we get to the water the tide has risen dramatically. Instead of casually picking kelp off the rocks, Tyler must dive into the frigid waters (in a steady downpour). I end up buying him lunch.

Bull Kelp grows all along the Pacific coastline ... from Southern California to Canada. It grows year round but the healthiest kelps are found in spring and summer.
