Edible Trail Project

The Edible trail Project – Connecting hiking trails to wild food and local eating

Text and drawings by Frits Ahlefeldt, Hiking.org

A new kind of hiking trails are starting to appear all over the world, where you not only walk, but also eat your way through the landscapes. Both connecting to the land, the locals, the local restaurants and cultures. Giving back and experiencing local traditions, food cultures and taste of variants and species. That can give the hiker a whole new level of connecting to the trails. The Edible trail project will look at these new hiking trail experiments and link to where more can be learned about hiking on edible trails – and how to create these food trails

The edible trail project is under development ( 2020)

Staying safe AND sane under pandemic, by walking

In 2020 a new pandemic ( Covid-19 ) is swiping across the globe and there seems to be at least two strategies to face it: Staying safe and in self-isolation, in sterile surroundings – And staying sane by connecting to nature

Did first hiker walk 11 Mio. years ago?

The fossil remains of a group of small human like apes have been found in Germany, and according to experts their bone-structures look like they might have been walking on two legs like us

When designing and building bridges out along the trails it is often better to do simple designs.

Creating livable cities by walking

A city that is both good for people and for the planet is a lot about walking, trees, city ecology and interesting ( and complicated) cityscapes – And very little about cars

In a sea of cars

There are more than a billion cars on our planet, and the number of vehicles keep growing even though cars look less and less like the answer to many of the both local and global challenges we face today

Hiking along a rising sea

One of the strongest lines of defense against rising sea levels and climate change can be coastal trails on dykes

Learning to live with less

We humans put a great pressure on Earth, if we had to carry all our stuff, our impact on the planet would most likely be much smaller
