The Hunter Gatherer Way: putting back the apple - talk by Ffyona Campbell
“While I was walking around the world, I learned from Australian Aborigines, African Bushmen, Pygmies and North American Indians. When I got back to Britain, I applied their logic to the landscape here to see if it would work. After many years, I realised I'd discovered our very own annual migration route which fits us perfectly into the eco-system and enables us to easily find an abundance of wild food at any time of the year. As I worked it out, I realised that hunting and gathering isn't about survival at all: it's about absolute freedom. It's the only way of life that enables all of us, not just the wealthy, to eat the very best foods in our country and as we do so, we play our part so that even more wild food grows back. “It means that if we were all gathering wild food there would be twice as much. It's not only rewarding on a physical level, providing our bodies with exactly the right nutrients it needs for each season, but hunting for and gathering wild food also requires us to use parts of our brain that have been blocked by 4,000 years of separation from Nature. It's no wonder then that when people begin gathering wild food, they report feelings of deep satisfaction and purpose they never experience in modern life.”
