Foraging around Hitsville
Norway and Sweden we have a nice legal concept
called "Allemannsrett" [lit.: 'every-mans-right'].
There's no direct translation for this, but it
means that you have a "legal right of
access to private land". The implication
is that you are free to roam the landscape, and
– for example – pick and eat wild
city-dwellers may never have had the pleasure
of eating wild berries straight from the bushes.
They are a treat for kids and adults alike, and
a shure symbol of the late summer to early fall
period. Fall in norwegian is "høst",
literally meaning harvest – so
trekking the wilderness looking for edible stuff,
is quite culturally rooted...
