Wild food walk around the green spaces of Loughborough area of Brixton to forage for our lunch!

Last month we had stuffed nettle leaves and horseradish leaf potato mash.

Come prepared to enjoy yourself and join in. Walks are accessible for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Bring suitable clothes and some food to share at the end. (Savoury things will be good this month as our main dish will be sweet).

Segen Ghebrekidan will be conducting another Eritrean coffee ceremony. See here for photos of the last one. https://lambethbandofsolidarity.wordpress.com/2010/03/18/eritrean-bread-and-goosegrass-curry-saturday-20th-february-2010/

We’ll be attempting to make some nettle twine. Look here for some instructions and you could try some in the week until then and bring it along.

The aim of Invisible Food is to strengthen social cohesion in disadvantaged areas throughout Lambeth, and specifically in the Coldharbour ward, through engaging with the natural environment. Invisible Food walks and workshops aim to increase opportunities for local residents to contribute their environmental, botanical and culintary knowledge and experience as part of a reskilling process towards a low carbon future.

Invisible Food organises wild food walks, cooking sessions and creative workshops (including drawing, writing, mapmaking and traditional crafts) as opportunities for sharing experience and strengthening communities.
