Wild-Food Foraging and Harvesting Beneath September's 'Apple Moon'

Can you feel the change in the air? The cool mornings and evenings, the stirring of a season, the slow shift as we bend away from summer and into the fall. For Natalie Bogwalker and her crew at Wild Abundance, the shift in seasons represents a change of pace.

“In the fall we harvest, we start to settle down, we offer our gratitude, we feast with our family and community,” says Natalie.

Here in the Appalachian Mountains, it’s time to focus on harvesting sweet pears and wild apples. It's a time to start closing the garden beds, to select a winter cover crop and secure against the cold season that swells at the beginning and the end of the day.

Here is a guide to making the most of this harvest season, compiled by the life experiences of Natalie Bogwalker with contributions from Chloe Lieberman and Zev Friedman.
