Devouring Nature

  • 16 May 2015 1-4pm

What could be lovelier than brambles picked straight from the bush? Our own famous forager John Muir certainly agreed.

We'd like to invite our pre-school foodie fans along to explore food in all its glory. Whether being gripped by tales of John Muir foraging in the countryside or guzzling his homegrown produce, getting stuck in to some edible crafts or planting their own food from seed, we think your young ones will have more fun with food than an afternoon at the supermarket! And what better start for our future in making Dunbar Scotland’s first Zero Waste Town?
