Foraging Pioneer Certification
Get certified and get paid to go on foraging trips to the local urban areas around Phoenix. Most trees and cactus we collect from are on people's private properties so we know exactly what kind of water and chemicals these plants are exposed to. You will learn all the tricks of how to forage the local desert foods that are available depending on the season and an increased understanding of how nature works. Foraging fulfills the need for the feeling of being part of a conscious community that is productive and doing good things for people and the environment. You will choose from the options, which food you want to get certified to forage. There are foraging expeditions each week that you can choose from but in order to get paid to forage you must be certified to work with the specific tree or plant that is being harvested. Expect to spend 2 hours in the field per trip, not counting your travel time to and from the site. Foraging Fanatics pays $20 per hour through a combination of cash, foraged food and Community Reserve Credits (1 credit is valued same a $1) which you can redeem for food or other local services in your community.
