Wild edible plants aren't a reliable food source. You may have seen wild berry bushes growing along a fence. A couple handfuls of berries won't keep several people alive for even a few days. A small group of people would exhaust all the edible plants in a area very quickly.

People had to develop plants that could be grown & harvested each year. Giving a constant source of food. Saving starter seed to plant again the following spring.

I doubt a human would live very long from only wild game animals. I know it's dangerous eating too much rabbit. It's such a lean protein that people in a survival situation get very sick.

Plants are an essential part of a humans diet. Farming isn't something done by choice. We have to do it to survive.
