Burton Gardens, Forage Walk No.1

Spring Greens!

Wild Kitchen Launch- Welcome, Wander & Weeds No More


Below is the first zine in a series, which we have been handing out to local residents around the community kitchen garden we have created at Heyhead Park, Brierfield.  The zine has more detail about the idea behind it and an illustrated map of the garden, which you are welcome to enhance with illustrations or words of your own!


The Event

Once everyone had arrived, guest chef and food-for-all activist Gill Watson helped us celebrate the range of edible weeds that can be foraged in the neighbourhood. Beginning with a forage walk, we were then treated to some nettle, and blackberry and raspberry leaf teas, while the native edibles were transformed - in the Burton Gardens outdoor cooking area - into dandelion and wild garlic pesto Egyptian pizzas, and followed by apple and sorrel BBQ tarts!
