Wild Food is seasonal, local nutritious, and FREE. Beneficial to human health and can be used as food medicine. We have about 8000 edible plants available to us globally and most of us eat only a tiny fraction of these. Our bodies have evolved over tens of thousands of years to deal with a varied diet of hundreds of plants and modern living now can leave us with less than 20 plant sources of food and much of this is processed.
So we often have a nutritional deficit, a taste deficit and a nature deficit, hence wild food.
