East London Wild Food Cycle 2012

12th June 2012 by

As seen on the Time Out London blog
Ever cycled through your local park and wondered which of those unassuming looking plants would make a tasty meal? Ever wanted to know the difference between goose grass and chickweed?


Come and learn about the abundance of free wild food growing right in the heart of this busy metropolis. The Otesha Project UK are hosting a day of (gentle) cycling through the green spaces of Tower Hamlets, accompanied by our very own wild food expert. We’ll learn which plants are good to eat (and which ones are best avoided) and how to identify them, before cooking up some of our wild finds in a tasty meal at the Otesha office at Toynbee Hall.

When: 10.30-15.00, Saturday 7th July 2012

Where: Meet at Toynbee Hall, 28 Commercial Street, London, E1 6LS

Cost: £20 waged/ £10 low or unwaged- this will cover the cost of the meal and resources. Otesha members get to come for absolutely free-  sign up on our website

You should bring your own bike and be reasonably confident at cycling- the ride will be 4 miles maximum and will be led by experienced cyclists
