Is it 'Wildcrafty' Enough?

Lots of folks love to be as authentic as possible when wildcrafting. Sometimes, this is just not possible, for example, in a public park! Amsterdam is fortunate to have one of the largest city parks in Europe – Amsterdamse Bos – so we don’t need to leave the city to feel out of the city (well, we still could hear the highway in the distance).

This handy little camp stove is the alternative to a camp-fire, which is illegal in the parks, and dangerous when you are in a beech forest surrounded by dry leaves… Luckily, we had a huge tree stump available to be our table, raising the the stove up by about a foot off the ground… and very little wind that day.

Being authentic has as much to do with your personal intent and process than with following rigid ideas of ” how it should be”. If we were attached to the idea of a roaring campfire, we’d have missed our beautiful experience – and our tasty, as-fresh-as-can-be soup – in the majestic beech forest!
