Foraging for food is a basic human skill that kept our ancestors alive, but it’s one that has been lost considerably since the modern convenience of grocery stores and farmers markets. Thankfully, the art of foraging is becoming more popular thanks to Survivor-type shows and the desire to become more eco-friendly.
Foraging food from the wild is also a great family activity, which teaches children where food comes from and gives them a sense of adventure. Foraging for food in the wild is like going on a treasure hunt!
There are countless naturally growing foods to find, but if you’re not a foraging expert you may want to start with some easily recognized staples.
