Trellis: Jam Foraging

Start at the Last Drop Café
21st Oct 2019
14:00  - 17:00
Free (booking essential)
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
5 Thornton Street, London E20 2AD

Join artist Clare Qualmann for a foraging walk around the area to the south of the park. We will gather autumn fruits to bring back to the café and transform into a hedgerow jam. Clare will introduce common edible plants and how to identify them, as well as some rules and good practice approaches for urban foraging. In the café we’ll look at preserving methods to get the most out of our pickings. All participants will get a jar of jam to take home at the end of the day.

Children welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.
Wear suitable clothes and footwear for an outdoor walk.

Participants are welcome to return to the Last Drop café on Wednesday to join a ‘jamboree’ (a free public feast of jam) as part of the LLDC/Trellis Family Fun Day where they can taste of all the preserves that have been made over the course of the East End Jam project this season.

Inspired by No Dirt, No Smell, No Trouble, a new installation in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Part of the free Trellis exhibition, produced by UCL Culture and UCL East with support from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
