In this episode we speak to Louise Hunt, a lover of wild food, sustainability and nature.
Foraging for wild food has increased in popularity over recent years, perhaps as a result of the rising awareness of eating local, fresh and organic ingredients. Foraging generally refers to searching, identifying and collecting food resources in the wild, including herbs, plants, fruit, nuts and mushrooms. It’s all about cooking, preserving and eating healthy and nutritious food while understanding how to maintain the balance of our natural environment.
Louise began foraging for wild food a little over two years ago, foraging helped her to find peace and a connection to the outdoors. Louise has always loved the outdoors, and began growing her own vegetables in Spring 2020. Foraging has solidified her love of being around plants and nature.
