It’s not a matter of if the apocalypse will happen but when. And with food certain to be scarce, you could do worse than take the advice of biologist and expert food forager Forrest Galante.
The Zimbabwe-born adventurer has barely set foot in a supermarket for the best part of a decade, instead using only his trusty 99 cent field guide and self-taught survival skills to feed his family a bounty of berries, mushrooms, game and seafood he’s foraged personally.
And when alone in the woods, his foraging goes even deeper. The champion spearfisher and environmentalist has eaten rats in their entirety - among other floor-swelling delicacies - in order to survive a week in the wilderness.
So with the apocalypse looming and Forrest’s unique skill set, we asked him to detail how to feed yourself for week without buying groceries or snacks. And to make sure he was the real deal, we spun a globe and landed smack middle on the California coastal woodlands.
