Some people can't see the forest for the trees. Some people see the forest, the trees, and a whole bunch of other stuff that grows there. These people are wild-harvesters. Every year, hundreds of them venture out into the woods and return with thousands of pounds of the forest's bounty. The difference between them and our foraging ancestors? They sell it.
