This weekend we held one of the last Forage Harvest Feast fynbos forages of the season with amazing people, beautiful weather and delicious food.
Reconnecting with our food and gaining knowledge about our edible Indigenous landscape evoked interesting conversation that flowed around the like minded crowd.

Last Saturday we had such a fun laughter filled Kids Forage and Harvest morning!
Our lovely group of excited kids collected wild herbs, edible flowers and garden veg to create and eat PIZZA!
And yes, moms and dads, grannies and grandpa’s – they ate ALL THEIR VEG UP!!!
The mothers who were there were all very pleased with this and asked when the next one was…. It’s this coming Saturday the 9th of November!
Here are some highlights from our morning:
Bella the pig!
Checking the goods
Rinsing the flowers
Mr Carrot Man
Creating edible masterpieces
Hope you can join us at our next exciting morning 🙂
Last week we had two brilliant Kids Forage mornings.
Just do the math:
Kids + school holidays + baskets + edible flowers & wild herbs + farm animals + an awesome playground + baking + paper + crayons
= A bunch of happy kids, floral & wild herb scones with lashings of jam and cream, fynbos iced tea, art, shrieks of laughter, new friends, plant knowledge, full tummies and
a Wild Fun Time!
Check it out:
Daring each other to eat the Spekboom leaves
Tasting Borage flowers
Discussing the merits of foraged wild edibles versus harvested crops. Or how mushy the mud is.
Peppermint Pelargonium …”It tastes like bubblegum!”
Meeting Bella the pig
Just kidding around
Washing the flowers and wild herbs
Then spinning them dry
Making the scones
Quality control tasting
Having fun in the playground
Scones are ready!
And such creative artists!
Thank you to all the lovely children and their wonderful parents for bringing them for the fun filled morning.
Next time we will be making pizza!
Hope to see all those who who could not make it at one of the next Kids Forage Mornings.
