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.
Timings of the workshop are 10:30AM – 12:00 Noon followed by lunch at Solitude farm café.
