A NEW STUDY TO DISCOVER HOW WILD FOOD AND FORAGING KNOWLEDGE CAN IMPACT LIVES
In the advent of industrial agriculture and the ubiquity of shopfronts, the need for foraging has waned. However, as communities begin, and continue, to experience a number of challenges accessing such food, such as the rising cost of living, it is our belief that there is room for foraging to return and with many potential benefits.
To explore this idea, we are embarking on a two-year study (March ‘24 to March ‘26) to see how foraging can support low- and no-income households within our community.
This Free Food Forever study will host a number households within the Rame Peninsula community. Each household will participate in a series of foraging related activities, seeking to improve their foraging confidence, connection to both community and the local environment, regular food spend, and culinary ability.
At the end of the initiative, we hope to better understand the potential impact foraging can have on individual lives, communities, and local environments.
Be A Part Of Our Foraging Study
(2024 – 2026)
We are looking for individuals to be a part of our Free Food Forever project, which will take place between Spring 2024 and Spring 2026.
This two-year study will seek to discover how wild food and foraging knowledge can impact households.
By participating in this project, you will be offered the oppurtunity to join a series of free foraging walks on the Rame Peninsula and receive wild food ingredients for your personal use.
