Urban Foraging in Canberra

Urban food foraging is the gathering of fruit, herbs, fungi and weeds in an urban environment. You might be surprised to discover how easy it is to nourish yourself from the edibles in your neighbourhood. It’s a great way to re-conceptualise the use of urban spaces, reconnect to natural surroundings – even in the city – and get healthy food for free. But please exercise caution – don’t eat anything you can’t positively identify, remember some plants are poisonous, fungi can even kill you and some weeds such a blackberries may have been sprayed.
