For some, bog-standard organic food isn’t quite sustainable enough. San Francisco’s, cutting edge eco-conscious foodies are making Bay area diets ‘greener’ every day. San Francisco has long been a leader in conscious eating, from slow food, biodynamic wines to citywide composting, and now they’re taking the farmer’s market concept to the next level – with foraging.
Where locavores eat food within a 100-mile radius, foraging adds another degree of both sustainability and community because it happens right within your city. Local countryside, parks and trees essentially become your supermarket.
The more people involved in creating food, the greater the possibility of local eating. Foragers are spurring dialogue between consumers and food sources and ultimately, pushing forward the frontier of greening food; we are what we eat, after all.
