Living With The Land - Part 9 - 21st Century Foraging

Permaculture People
Friday, 4th September 2015

Wild food experimentalist and passionate educator Fergus Drennan has been foraging for over 25 years.

By following the traditions of foraging for wild foods, medicinals and building materials, we can reconnect with our landscapes, learning to live in tune with nature. Fergus brings this tradition into the modern world through his experimental techniques such as making paper from bracket mushrooms and syrups from bullrushes.

Fergus shows some common, yet wonderful plants that are not only edible, but are tasty and high in nutrients and anti-oxidants as well as introducing us to more of his experimental work.

Narrated by Bruce Parry, award-winning film maker, explorer, and indigenous rights advocate.

Produced by Permaculture People for Permaculture magazine
