"Like a sparrow’s song, foraging calls you to look around. It lures you to observe and indulge in the gentle rhythms that unfold with the seasons. It’s mindfulness at its best. Wild food is also incredibly delicious, offering a fresh palette of new and exotic flavours which are rich with nutrients, but it’s incredibly nutritious."
