There are gods of farming and of hunting, but what about foraging?

It seems there would've been some of those before hunting and farming. Could be that foraging deities became the latter.
Of forging or foraging?

First , a belated happy birthday , blackfire is hungry...

Second , in answer to your question...

Forest spirits , and ancestral spirits were honored for foraging...

Here is a quick link , regarding Caami...

Further , I would consider the "Green Man" , "Forest Faery" , "Greensleeves" ,

all to fit that category , as well others I am not presently thinking of...

Perhaps Frey ?

Thanks, Shawn Blackwolf. And thanks for the link; it would appear there are some, after all.

Lol I misread it the first time. Nymphs of the forest and maybe Persephone since she is the goddess of spring she was known for picking flowers

@Barry J King and @Psyche: Yeah, it's "foraging" and not "forging." I think it's pretty funny that people are reading "forging" since my real last name relates to metal-working.
At least, I hope that's the kind of forging people are reading.

Gods of the wilderness and wild-spaces, such as: Cernunnos, Danu, Freyr, Freya, Nertha.

Perhaps Artemis? as far as foraging being "hunting" for vegetation.

Katy Perry springs to mind.

Oh sure, she appears to be a mortal female and has some fame for warbling out a tune or three - but I suspect she's a foraging god incognito.

Though he's a spirit rather than a god, how about the green man ?
