A foraging journey through the German Eifel

Once in a while we all get that romantic idea; living from the land, only eating fresh, pure food and everything organic. Forage and eat what nature provides us. In this urban times we almost forgot where our food comes from.

A new wave of people has risen up. Conscious people who learn the old ways of foraging. Picking mushrooms, berries and making wild salads. Marin Leus from Groene Avonturen is one of those people. She lived of the grid, without a fridge and tries to eat as much wild food as possible. In her I found the perfect partner to go on a wild forage adventure. With her skills in foraging and my skills in traveling we form the perfect duo to live from the land for a couple of days. But is this actually possible?

During these days we learned how to make a meal from apples and elderberries. We learned how one can be happy with just two mushrooms. How to scan the surrounding for fresh growing delicacies or the psychological effects of not knowing if you’re going to eat in the evening.
