Sanford, ME (NEWS CENTER) -- Clayton Smith is a Maine native and former Marine who spends much of the year foraging.

"Always have permission to go foraging," said Smith.

For winter berries, he looks in places where the plants would have wet feet. Winter berries are a holly. Hollies require a male and a female plant to be near to each other with the female bearing the berries.

Winter berries are often assembled in bouquets and sold at floral and gardening shops.

Smith is a happy worker, with his voice booming as he talks about how he enjoys being outside.
