Glorious Forest is what we call our 100 acre site in Madison County, North Carolina. A plant and mineral rich area of Appalachia north of Asheville.
Our dream is to work with the rich plants already living in our region, while carefully introducing appropriate plants and animals to instigate a new sacred cuisine. We are passionate about wild foods, wild foods nutrition, and plant, tree and crystal medicine. We are deeply inspired by walking in the Forest, foraging food, and incorporating it into ourselves and sharing it with our communities.
