WHAT IS URBAN FORAGING?

WHAT IS IT?

Urban foraging means gathering in the urban environment. In this context, we’re looking at foraging for fresh food from trees, shrubs, edible herbs and weeds etc.

The term urban foraging can also be used in reference to gathering furniture, discarded waste and dumpster diving – this is not what we’re referring to here.

WHY FORAGE FOR FRESH FOOD?

• Reconnect with our surroundings, reconnecting to urban place, space and home
• Free food
• Different use of urban public space
• Meet new people
• Good fresh food – supplement diet with healthy nutritious food
