DFP#8: Urban Foraging
Pat writes: If you’ve never foraged before the prospect could seem a rather daunting. You can get wet, you can get dirty. Occasionally, as I have found out, you get spectacularly stung by a rogue wasp that thinks your rosehips are his rosehips! All this for a handful of berries, some windfall apples or unusual greens? And yet the popularity of foraging is increasing – for pleasure but also as a form of activism and a statement of intent about localised food systems. On this week’s show I’m joined by food activist Darren Flint who runs independent foraging walks in south London, Paul MacKay from Transition Belsize in north London, and mushroom expert Andy Overall co-founder Fungi to be With.
