Meet Adam

AdamReishi2017My name is Adam Haritan, and I am a wild food enthusiast, researcher, and forager.

For several years, I have been leading wild edible plant and mushroom walks throughout the woods, forests, and fields of Pennsylvania as a way of reconnecting humans with their land.

In addition to outdoor walks and hikes, I offer indoor presentations on a variety of topics related to foraging, herbal medicine making, and the benefits of nature connection.  A brief list of the various organizations for which I have presented include Phipps Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, Penn State Master Gardeners, L.L. Bean, University of Pittsburgh, and Pennsylvania State Parks.

To learn more about the work I do, please visit my YouTube channel which features dozens of videos pertaining to foraging, plant identification, mushroom identification, and tree identification.

If you’re interested in supporting the work here at Wild Foodism, check out the online store which features personally created medicinal mushroom extractions and other wild food supplements.

Thank you!

  1. Dear Adam,
    I’ve just discovered your pages here and am really interested. I found oyu because I was looking for something with birch tree bark as a treatment for my Dad’s skin after a cancer operation. I read about birch tree bark here in Germany where I live and was hoping to find a cream or salve with a large amount of it in it. My Dad wouldn’t be able to go through the “production process” you rightly suggest. Maybe you’ve got an idea how he could find it – compounding pharmacy??
    Thank you and I’ll keep on reading!

    1. Hi Jenny,

      Thank you for reaching out. There are, unfortunately, few topical products that contain birch bark. However, if you do a search for “birch bark salve” in Google, you’ll come across a few sites that offer their products. I have never used any commercially, so I cannot speak to their effectiveness. Still, it may be something worth looking into.

      I may be making my own later this year, and you may be interested in some. If you have no luck finding any, let me know.

      Wishing you all the best, and thank you for reading!
      -Adam

  2. Dear Sander Sluijter,
    Thank you for the link – very interesting. It would be nice to get advice on which products contain birch bark juice as my dad is not able to obtain it as described in the website. Product names would be super helpful here. Thanks once again!
    Sincerely,
    Jenny Sandhaas

  3. Thank you Adam! I would like to go on your list of people to notify when you get your birch salve/creme going. I’ll keep on looking but haven’t found anything interesting yet.
    Sincerely,
    Jenny Sandhaas

  4. Hi Adam. I found what I think might be Chaga today. However there was wood inside. I would like to send pics if you could take a look please. Thanks. Mandy

  5. Hi Adam, I have enjoyed your YouTube channel! Thank you for your incredible insite!
    I have been looking across Minnesota and western Wisconsin the past many months for Polypore’s and Chaga… since being diagnosed with Stage 3 Colorectal cancer, I have been vary successful with the Birch Polypore… but no luck on the Chaga… today I found what I first thought was Chaga, but it wasn’t on Birch, there was quite a bit of it on White Oak… possibly Phellinus Igniarius? other times I saw something like it on Elm and wild Cherry. I have a picture I can send you if you can connect at jrcoye@gmail.com. Thank you!
