The most important part of wildcrafting is Plant Identification. Never pick a plant you are not 100% sure you can identify. I recommend using 3 or more sources when identifying plants and when possible go on plant walks with local herbalists or knowledgeable plant professionals. To get you started I am sharing a short video from Thomas J. Elpel talking about his book “Botany in a Day”. A handy beginners guide to learning the plant families and key plant structures to identifying plants.
