Introducing Boskoi

Boskoi is a free, opensource mobile app that helps you explore and map the edible landscape wherever you are. Named after the greek word for grazer or brouwser the app lays out a map of local fruits and herbs and allows users to edit and add their own finds. Made by the foragers at Urban Edibles in Amsterdam Boskoi is an Ushahidi-based app that comes with a few foraging guidelines.


Finds can be reported on this website or via the current beta app for Android smartphones.

Guidelines
  1. Be friendly: Ask permission if ownership is unclear
  2. Be generous: How much do you really need? Leave most for others (wildlife)
  3. Be alert: Beware of toxicity and don’t tread on other plants when picking
  4. Be careful: Only add locations that are robust and can survive limited foraging

Any additions to Boskoi will be reviewed. Endangered or rare species are not admitted.
