Foraging for wild food is an ancient art. A slow and graceful way to feed and sustain ourselves.
The very act of foraging for wild edible plants is deeply healing and transformative.
Its benefits extend far beyond simply putting food on the table. It opens you up to the mystery and wonder of Life.
There is nothing more fulfilling than wandering around picking a bit here, a bit there. Crushing. Smelling. Nibbling.
Only to return home and prepare scrumptious food for loved ones and friends.
