Audible Weed Walk – ep.25 “Foraging as a child”

Persons who forage more wild varieties in childhood have a better sense of biodiversity as adults. Turned out, all across India, and even in Tamil Nadu perhaps one or two generations back that was the practice. Little kids would enjoy foraging and pick seasonal greens on their way back home from school – not always as a compulsion for economic reasons — but also part of a game, a joyful engagement, a play that kids indulged in before illuminated screens got all our attention.
