Comments / Notes I retired in June 2015 after serving for over 25 years as the Rivers Advocate for the Mass. Department of Fish and Game. Since then, while continuing to pursue my passion for gathering, eating and teaching people about wild edible plants (edible weeds and invasives as well as natives) and mushrooms (see, something I have done for over four decades, I am now playing the role of Johnny Appleseed for native edible species. I have set up a nursery (in Weston, MA) where I am growing over 1,000 plants, representing more than a third of the more than 170 species native to New England ecoregions that are edible by people (see, many of which I propagated from seed that I gathered myself. I am then forming partnerships with land trusts, municipalities, state and federal agencies, schools and colleges, tribal groups and others, to plant plants from my nursery on appropriate places on their properties.
