The Urbane Forager: Fruit and Nuts for Free – talk, walk and book signing

We are delighted to welcome Alan Gibson, AKA The Urbane Forager for a talk and book signing, and hopefully (weather permitting) a local walk!

Saturday 13 June 2015, 11am at The Art House

jacketAlan’s mission is to promote the fun and healthy family foraging activity of identifying fruit and nut trees on local public land, locating them on a map and then picking, eating, processing and preserving the produce.

He says:

“Foraging for us is all about fun and having a healthy balance it is the opportunity to do something hearty and sociable; it also gets me up trees with the kids, and helps prevent anyone from getting rickets, scurvy or just too fat. Processing and cooking the produce is another skill to learn together.”

Join Alan for a talk, with hopefully a walk and some social time from 11am until around lunchtime. There is no set cost for the event but donations to The Art House are welcomed.

He will have 100 specially printed, first edition books for sale at the event, these will cost £12.00 each (cash only please).
