Mark was initiated into the wolrd of wild foods as a youngster when his dad told him that the berries of Autumn Olive were edible and delicious. As time went on, he learned how abundant and delicious wild foods are, and has made the incorporation of them into his diet and seasonal flow a way of life. For 5 years mark ran Eat Here Now in Metro Detroit, a wild food plant walk series that explored the abundance of food in southeast Michigan. Since moving to Virginia, he has been fascinated by the wild foods that grow here and continues to deepen his interaction with these amazing plants.
Mark is co-owner of Mountain Run Permaculture in Sedalia, VA. Along with his wife Allison, they manage over 10 acres of diverse fruit orchards, gardens, hedges, livestock, and more. They also offer consulting, design, and education services to clients across the region.
