Let the foraging begin!

In the next two weeks we will be foraging, gathering, sourcing, fishing and harvesting all the ingredients for our Feast on 24 November.  Produce, weeds, native plants and edible flowers, as well as free range pork, freegan bread, freshly caught fish and much more will all go on the table. 
This evening Sue and Regina went over to the Ranui Community Gardens to collect Jerusalem artichokes, elderberry flowers and onion weed. Watch this space, as in the coming days we will post more photos of edible wonders (and some recipes too!).

And of course don't forget to book your tickets for our POP Dining Forage to Feast Celebration. Click here for more info!
