Hi EmmaEmma said:Well if I couldn't get food from the hedges I'd be having that little bit more trouble paying my rent...
Something that I think that I am seeing here is that we all use bits of bushcraft as convenient.
Your usage has some economic need and no doubt other reasons as well.
I'm just finishing building a boat for creek and river running, and coastal cruising. I have been learning about the free foods available in and around water from books and courses (helping others to make their living from bushcraft) :0)
I want to be able to utilise what is around me. I don't have an economic need for it but I do have an interest in unprocessed 'natural' foods.
My bushcrafting is coming down to sharp edges for food preparation, collecting food and, off the boat, fire for cooking. The shelter elements are unneccessary because I will sleep on the boat, but have the option of basha and hammock.
What practical use are others making of their bushcraft, or is that another thread?
