foraging in Brighton…

Ever wondered what you walk past each day which you could add to your daily diet? Ever wondered what this whole foraging thing is about? Well, perhaps we can help with our foraging in Brighton activities.

As part of our ongoing Edible City studio project, we have been undertaking a lot of activities around urban foraging in Brighton, from edible walks and talks for the Chelsea Fringe Festival, to Pecha Kucha presentations and product developments, such as our new Edible City map of Brighton, which you can purchase below.

 

The Edible City activities will be growing (sorry) in the forthcoming months now we have moved into our new studio premises to include regular walks and a supper club, which will be held at the studio on our large reclaimed lab table. See below for a taster of what we will be doing…

Edible City Map… 

Produced for our recent Chelsea Fringe Festival foraging tour, this is a starter pack for foraging in Brighton. Featuring an illustrated map of Brighton, the pack includes a set of 30 stickers featuring 10 different plants, fruits and flowers which are readily available in the city, with a key to the sorts of places you can find them and a couple of tips as to how you can use them. There will be a couple of stickers already on the map based on our secret little spots, but the rest of the stickers will be yours to discover and create your own foraging map…
