Local foods are easy to grow thus are found in abundance. They use less water, have high nutritional & medicinal values, are non-exclusive and have no ecological cost. All in all exploring & eating local foods is the most simple and direct action we can have to undermine the vast exploitation and pollution caused by industrialised agriculture.
We start with an introduction, exploring man’s relationship with Mother Nature and where his food comes from. We make a tour of the farm, exploring various practices in context with a specific focus on understanding the values of local foods, their medicinal & nutritional values etc. We then harvest upto 25-30 different local foods; leaves, roots, flowers, fruits, wild vines etc.
At the kitchen we display the produce and prepare it into a delicious salad, a tribal booster juice and a green chutney which is served with our localicious lunch.
To close the workshop, we read a chapter from Masanobu Fukuoka’s book “The One Straw Revolution”, to demonstrate that this is no idle philosophy but something lived everyday at Solitude Farm.
