How to get started foraging fruit

Foraging has to be the most eco-friendly, no waste way to source your summer fruits. 

All those hedges full of juicy blackberries and patches of wild raspberries come into their own in the second half of summer and of course anything you find in the wild, doesn’t come in pesky plastic.
