School Talkabout on: The loss of Wild Ocean Food


For how long will we be able to forage for Wild Food in a World of Food Farming?

In the tale of ‘Hew the Human’,  he started a farm to secure year round food for his family. At the end of the story, all ‘Hewmans’ (humans) looked to the open sea for food as they had totally covered all land with buildings.

In the story, the sea remained unpolluted and therefore full of edible creatures. In the real World, the sea is full of pollution and becoming more polluted daily. The real story of fishing the sea is one of industrial greed and not one of feeding a family’s need.

School Talkabouts on the subject of ‘need and greed’ reveal both the problems that capital-driven societies continue to propagate and the options available, to each new generation, to solve our shared global food requirements.

If you and your pupils have a stomach for rich debate, make a date in your diary with us.
