My friend Graham interviewed me this afternoon as part of his master's thesis in adventure education at Prescott College. Some years ago, Graham and I gave our support to a young man in our community who made a commitment to only eat wild foods for several months. It was an inspiring project, and now Graham is researching the influences, motivations, and outcomes of this young man's "wild foods challenge." He is also exploring the role of mentoring in supporting young people who initiate meaningful nature-based projects.
As an exchange for my willingness to be one of his research subjects, Graham agreed to appear in my blog.
