Event Description

Our suburbs are a gleaners paradise, the overhanging branches and diverse pickings are tribute to our bountiful subtropical climate andmulticultural heritage. But the decades of nativist plantings, and the overly-cautious policies that keep food producing trees off of our nature strips lest somebody slip on a macadamia, or be offended by fallen fruit, has dampened the cities potential as a veritable food forest.

The edible streets tour offers an introduction to foods, fungi, weeds and other functional plants that inhabit our urban environment. Along the way we discuss the ethical considerations of harvesting, share maps, surplus and ideas to contribute to our edible landscapes.

Last year we helped the authors of The Weed Forager's Handbook with their research on wild edibles in Brisbane and we will have copies of the book for sale on the day.

BYO hat, comfy shoes and water.

9-12 Saturday 13th September, 2014

Tickets are $15/12 (concession).

To book, follow the link in the Event listing (at the bottom of the information). Please note that RSVP here does not equate to a booking.

If anyone would like a copy of the wonderful guide Weed Foragers Handbook and can't attend on the day, organise pre-payment with Ben and I can collect the books for you on the day and get them to you somehow.
