Local Food Economies and Urban Foraging with Wyrd Flora

Join Wyrd Flora for this urban walk with a difference.

Join Wyrd Flora on an urban walk where you'll discover plants that grow between the cracks, their names and their uses in the wider ecosystem as well as how they were used, and still are used, in traditional plant crafting.

The second part of the day will be followed by a group discussion back at the Community Kitchen where we will have a herbal tea blend and light snacks provided from Bennison's Farm.

The session will end at the Common Ground Community Kitchen and Cafe at the Minories in the town centre.

This event is presented as part of wildcrafting, a programme of free skill sharing walks, workshops, and events by Wyrd Flora about gathering and processing natural materials.

Learn to observe, journal, gather and process plants and other organic materials from the natural world.

Supported by the Essex County Council Arts and Cultural Fund.
