Hello! I am Hyunsuh, psychology student living in Amsterdam and a keen learner who just got introduced to the world of foraging!
I have started to realize that where I live, Amsterdam Oost, is a neighborhood quite abundant with edible plants— in Flevopark there are ramsons, stinging nettles, dead nettles, wild mustards, cleavers and creeping Charlie, next to the jogging track of Amstel river are chestnut trees, crabapple trees and blackberry bushes. There are two community gardens as well, taken good care of by our neighborhood community including us students. Ever since being inspired to forage from a friend who is also interested in this habit and herb crafting, I find myself seeing my neighborhood in a different light. A plant is no longer a negligible ‘weed’ to me once I learn its name. It is delightful to learn how much is available in one’s vicinity, and I am excited to learn more!
