While there s no doubt the world is a very different place to how it was 10,000 years ago, some things have remained the same. We are still hunter-gatherers, just like our ancestors. Our minds and bodies are designed to survive and thrive, allowing us to forage in highly complex, varied and ingenious ways. We have the ability to observe the landscape around us and use it to our advantage, making fire and tools for hunting and fishing. But while most of us ignore our innate skills, choosing to forage for food in supermarkets, there are a growing number of people who are rejecting this in favour of reconnecting with past ways. They re learning how to really enjoy their food from start to finish by creating the means to do so. They are growing their own vegetables, curing, preserving, brewing, even raising livestock. They are 21st-century hunter-gatherers.
