Young foragers are finding community on TikTok while educating the next gen about the practice.

Dec 27 2021

Young foragers are finding community on TikTok while educating the next gen about the practice. Known as the practice of harvesting plants, fruits, or vegetables from the forest to be eaten, foraging has been upheld for thousands of years by many cultures, and now some young people are bringing the practice to TikTok via educational videos. Gabrielle Cerberville (@chaoticforager) makes regular foraging videos on TikTok, sharing how to distinguish whether a mushroom is poisonous or not along with more educational foraging tips with her audience of over 800,000 followers; Alexis Nikole (@alexisnikole) has gained a notable following of 3.2 million TikTok followers for her videos about the Black foraging community and how to cook with ingredients found in nature; and Lateefah Stanford, a TikToker with 14,000 followers, often shares about the medicinal properties of various plants and is known for her “who wants to be a foraging millionaire?” game she often plays with her followers to help them distinguish edible plants from toxic look-alikes. According to Cerberville, TikTokers go to the app to be entertained or educated, and while foraging may seem like an unlikely practice / community to be taking off on the app, it shows just how vast TikTok subcultures can be. YPulse’s Clicking on Community trend research explores how Gen Z and Millennials are building community online, and 34% of Gen Z and 29% of Millennials are part of an online group focused on a shared hobby.
