GATHER | seasonal guides + plant profiles
The revelation of unsuspected tastes and the knowledge that there’s a wealth of free food all over our neighbourhoods has most definitely made us look at our local landscape in a completely different way.
Wild food grows all around us: in woods and fields, along roadsides, even in our gardens. Fruit, nuts, mushrooms, edible leaves, dandelions and so much more are all delicious, nutritious and free for the taking.
So why gather? It gets you outside! But most importantly, it connects you to your natural surroundings and the food on your plate! What’s more, wild foods are good for you! Highly nutritious and full of other healthy stuff, they’re packed full of vitamins and minerals, much more than the cultivated equivalents.
