February Foraging with Samuel Arnold Keane
This is a Dublin Branch event
We are going to have an absolutely marvellous outing on Sunday, February 12th when Samuel Arnold Keane will take us foraging!
With foraging edible ‘weeds’ we end up taking care and protecting wild pieces of land. We form a relationship with land that is otherwise labelled as ‘neglected’ or disused. It is this type of ‘wild’ land that we so desperately need to allow insect life- and therefore bird life, and indeed human life to become sustainable. In an urban setting, foraging can be a strong practice in community building, while gathering, preparing, preserving wild foods and materials into many various uses. It is an activity than can include all ages and abilities.
The Sunday low tides for 2023 are seriously low, so we are meeting at Dalkey Dart Station at 9:30 to walk to Whiterock Beach in Killiney. Wear sensible shoes, and bring a small container or two for your ‘forage’
Samuel has a wonderful new book on foraging, and he will have copies to sell. They are €10 each, and you will need CASH.
Date & Time: 12th February, 09:30
Meeting Point: Dalkey Dart Station
