Foraging Ethics

I was recently sent a link to THIS article in a Sacramento magazine. "Everybody does it" is not an acceptable excuse for foraging on private land, nor is it acceptable to grab greens from the roadside without consideration of the effects of car exhaust on your customers, nor is it acceptable to pick greens adjacent to vineyards that spray pesticides. Like all trends that start as fads, foraging restaurants need to speak loudly about what is acceptable and not.
