** Foraging for food in London **
Some of London's top restaurants are using a supplier who forages for food in forests and bushes.

I liked that cheers, good point about the over-harvesting. Will be interesting to see what will happen if foraging gets more and more popular.

Indeed, although if everyone started to do it then it would ruin it for the rest of us. - That girl who said that she would buy foraged food if it was in a plastic bag in a supermarket :banghead: lets home that all of natures harvest does not end up in T***o. As he said there would have to be some kind of regualtions.
