Wild food & foraging
Tired of the same bland processed food that's been sweating it's way to the supermarket on a lorry?
Why not pick what nature provides for us yourself? Food in its natural state as it was intended.
Liven up your walk and discover the foods all around you that Britons have been fuelling themselves with for centuries. Many of those plants you pass every time you go for a walk can form part of a tasty and nutritious meal or snack.
