My name is Jon Kahler. I am living in Utrecht, the Netherlands, but I’m originally from Australia. As some people have said, it’s illegal to forage here. I know some people who forage, however, given the density of this country, pollution and contaminated harvests are a constant worry!
Back in Australia, foraging is a lot more common. With such wild spaces of flora and fauna, there is a lot of opportunity to find “bush tucker”. But this practice is intimately tied to the traditions of First Nations people. I think learning, respecting and acting from this tradition is an important part of foraging in Australia.
