Eating Things: Foraging led by Sneha Solanki

6 August 2022

Register for your place and your Beer & Berries ticket. Kids go free. 

Join artist Sneha Solenki on a foraging expedition around the grounds of Hospitalfield.

Eating Things are back at Beer and Berries for another food gathering walk in the grounds of Hospitalfield and surrounding area.

Join a foraging group led by Sneha and her two children Rasa and Sona to ‘search’ and ‘gather’ wild or non-cultivated plants and fungus from within the Hospitalfield site and surrounding area.

Come along and share your knowledge or to learn from others on edible, medical and harmful plants and fungus found outside of conventional food systems. Record your collaborative findings as drawings, notes or impressions.

EATING THINGS has grown out from a family project documenting the journey of two children as they start to learn and eat edible ‘things’ from ‘outside’. Starting in 2010 when the eldest child was a year old, the project became a method to ‘grow’ knowledge as the children grew.

The project has extended out an intergenerational project to grow, deepen and develop knowledge and culture through shared learning

This workshop is part of the annual Beer & Berries Festival on 6 August. Find out more
