🌷Spring Foraging Walk: Experienced wild food guide and cook, Mike Cutting, will be holding a springtime foraging and plant ID walk in Stanmer Park this Sunday. On the walk you'll encounter, examine, taste and smell many species of edible and medicinal plants, trees and (potentially) fungi that make this place home. You will also meet poisonous or otherwise toxic plants to be avoided or handled with caution, which are just as important to be aware of as their delicious or otherwise useful relatives. Following the ID walk you will have the chance to try a variety of tasters prepared using wild foods combined with common ingredients (tickets).

🍱Food: Co-founder Adam Englebright went to Meat Bread Wine, despite being a teetotal vegan:

I had a sandwich from Meat Bread Wine, which used to be Isaac At. It was really nice. Had nice bread, nice fillings, I can't remember what it's called, all the sandwiches there have names. It was the vegan version of something. Whatever it was, it was really tasty. It was the vegan Rachel.

☕️Drink: Tech girl Amber has been enjoying the delights of T @ The Dials:

The banana latte? What do you want me to say? It's one of those things that sounds weird but very enticing, and you want to say that it doesn't work, but it really does, like genuinely really does. It's very yummy. It's like if you've ever had a foamy banana, it's like someone's liquidised some foamy bananas and put them in a coffee.
