Foraging and the Arts are the main threads that hold the Wild-Taste ethos together.


We have been foraging the same as every other living thing since our begining and carry on doing so in our every day lives .

Always looking for something to complete our daily missions weather it's at a Super Market for the best price, A Charity Shop for that object that you may not need but inspires you, general shopping for some shopping therepy, searching for that record at a Record fair.

It's our Primeval working in many ways for our various needs  in our lives from Fun, Leisure, Educational or Survival.


 FORAGING, FEEDING OUR EXISTANCE.

LANDESCAPE (See LandEscape page)

HISTORIC FORAGING WALKS


There are several of these Walks during the year which explores various Historic Sites as well as increasing our Forager, Hunter Gathering knowledge of the specific sites this crosses over with the LandEscape project.

The LandEscape featured on the left was a group of roughly 20 persons Starting from Raydon Church Suffolk in search of a Barrow marked on an early Ordinance Survey map the Hungry  Barrow. This we managed to locate with finds of flint tools identified by our Archeologist on the walk where we ended at the Ancient Church of Shelly with an excellent Oyster Mushroom and Marjoram sandwich cooked on a small stove with Pine Needle and Honey Sauce in the Beautiful Wild flower Churchyard.
