I’m Martine and I just started this course, and the ethical foraging rules. I live in Amsterdam Oost, Czaar Peterbuurt. I never foraged in the city actually (before coming to Frankendael), mainly because I simply supposed it wouldn’t be clean enough (too polluted). I grew up in Drenthe and have plucked something here and there, and I remember plucking hazelnuts with my grandparents near Den Haag, but this is al a pretty long time ago. A couple of weeks ago, I realized I’m actually feeling pretty cut off from nature (whilst being part of it, how bizarre), and through taking part in this course I would like to connect again.
I admit that I didn’t know foraging was actually illegal, now I know 🙂 I read an article about the why behind that and was like ‘wow, why didn’t I know this?”. But bringing some awareness to it feels great.
In the same article (https://www.dvhn.nl/groningen/Wild-plukken-Wat-wel-en-niet-mag-22388392.html?harvest_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F) they refer to this website called http://wildplukwijzer.nl/
But I’m wondering if that’s even responsible. They’ve put a little disclaimer (spelregels) but still..
Do you know anything about this website/organisation and their way of working Lynn?
Looking forward to diving deeper. See you on Friday!
