Workshop: Urban Foraging by Michelle Lai, TANAH

Description
Go on a trail around Gillman Barracks, identifying local plants, as well as explore their culinary and other functional uses.

This workshop is part of The Harvesting: An Urban Farming Initiative, which serves as a platform for knowledge exchange on food, facilitating a debate concentrated on the domestic sphere. Spanning two weekends during CITIES FOR PEOPLE, the project will catalyse a discussion examining the larger socio-political condition surrounding personal control of the food system, as well as looking at how locally grown food and small-scale and urban agriculture can be agents of self-expression and assertion.

Part of CITIES FOR PEOPLE NTU CCA Ideas Fest 2016/17.
