Foraging is not a new idea – our ancestors have been doing it for millions of years. It is only in relatively recent times that we have relied on farming and then our supermarkets to decide what we should be eating.In today’s busy world, convenience is highly prized but we are seeing a sharp rise in allergies. Our narrower diet, based on a limited range of farmed and processed foods is having an affect on our collective health.
A forager will tend to eat a much wider basket of foods than would be found in the aisles of your local supermarket.
We enjoy and benefit from foraging in our beautiful countryside. Fantastic edible goodies; Berries, roots, leaves, seaweed, mushrooms………….so much to enjoy but you need to know what you can eat and what you must leave alone.
We love having the confidence to pick and eat foods that most people would not even notice or recognise.
If you would like to learn more about the delicious and health giving plants that are all around us please book onto one of our courses. We look forward to seeing you.
