A wild food expert is leading a foraging and feasting tour today around Brislington Brook. Dr Adrian Boots (below) will be starting the tour at 1pm from St Anne’s Park Primary School, teaching about sustainability and sourcing seasonal food, and ending with a picnic and campfire back at the school.
Tour organiser Rowan Matthiessen from the Sustainable City Team at Bristol City Council, said: “The Brislington Brook corridor is an abundant, wild and beautiful place which often goes overlooked by the people of Bristol – even those who are right on its doorstep.
“We want to encourage people to get out there and realise how much nature has to offer, as well as connecting with their neighbours and community. The more people know and appreciate their local natural resources, rights to green space for leisure and food production, the more they will be able to connect with these issues on a global scale.”
The tour is being organised as part of Oxfam’s Grow campaign, which looks at the global food chain, the inequalities within that system and the ways in which this can be redressed.
