We had an exciting day with Josh Quick of Wild St.Ives walking along 'Clodgy', the cliff top above Porthmeor Beach discovering what is safe to eat and what is definitely not (hemlock!) as well as medicinal and practical uses of various plants. Josh then made us a meal from foraged ingredients including three cornered leek pesto and moroccan potatoes, which included foraged herbs and spices previously dried and mint tea. It was a delicious feast in the extraordinary environment of his cliff-top allotment. many thanks to Josh for his wisdom and professional yet relaxed approach to teaching.
Happily, we've been able to meet a few times in September -- outdoors. Even when we couldn't meet, though, Roamers stayed in touch by way of our post card project (details here) -- we've posted most the them here. There are also paintings and drawings and photographs from Toby, Suzi, Jon and Not Just Any Girl. Look under the "Film" tab above for three new videos!
