Collecting wild food and cooking on an open fire develops fine motor skills, encourages good hygiene and raises awareness of nutrition. It is a truly ancient activity that links us directly to our hunter-gathering past – the children love to think about this and experience it with all their senses. We have seen at our own Forest School how learning where wild food can be found increases the children’s sense of self-reliance and confidence, and collecting food together and sharing it creates a sense of community, deepening trust and a sense of belonging. Working with fire under adult supervision is a responsible task that requires children to listen, be patient and focus, as well as assess risk, which in turn develops independence and raises self-esteem.
