Forage in the Forest Walk

About the Forest Walk

This Forest walk is an expression of connecting with our roots, exploring the rich diversity of our local food, experiencing the tribal culinary delights and learning from tribal wisdom and their sustainable ways of living. 

It is an effort into investing a day where each one of us can return back with something that makes our lives more fulfilling, happy or maybe just experience the magic our forests have to offer.
