I am Sonia and I live close from Amsterdamse Bos. I was lucky enough to take a walk with Lynn and forage for the first time in Amsterdam. Actually, I did forage one or two times in my neighbourhood, there is a super pretty rosemary bush just next to my place. Before that, I was not aware that foraging was forbidden in the Netherlands and that the Amsterdamse Bos is very well protected from it.
I have to say that I have foraged in my own country (Spain) but always in a very respectful way. My values state that we should take just what is necessary because the nature provides but we also have to give her back by being grateful and thinking that humans are not the only animals that inhabit the Earth.
Therefore, when foraging I bare in mind that we live in community with the plants, the animals and other humans. With this being said, I guess that the foraging rules are based on this principles and the principles of maintaining the species growing, blooming and living in a natural reciprocity.
I am very excited to learn more about the plants!!!!
