Meet Forest, the Master Wild Seed Man!
Meet Forest Shomer, the Master Wild Seedman. For 25 years, Forest’s livelihood has come from over 200 species of seeds, but he has no farm or garden to tend to. Instead, he harvests native seeds from the wild.
He harvests sustainably, never harvesting more than the environment can handle, and he always aims to leave no trace. Because of this, Forest has been able to return to the same locations for 20 years. Many of the seeds are sold to be used for habitat restoration, erosion control, flowers for bees and butterflies, and Forest’s seeds are used for reforestation too! Only a few dozen master seedmen like Forest exist in the USA.
