Food from Trees
17 Jan 2015: A walk in the park discussing food from trees, with winter tree ID too, followed by relevant nibbles. Meet outside Bruce Castle Museum N17 at 1pm.
There are plenty of organisations promoting the ecological & nutritional advantages of tree foods:
– A classic text (and a great read) : ‘Tree Crops: A Permanent Agriculture’ by J.Russell Smith. Read about the book here. It’s available free online here. And here’s a place to buy it avoiding the evil amazon: www.jazmin-books.co.uk
– If you’ve got far too much time on your hands, here are some FAO papers to look at: Non-Wood Forest Products from Temperate Broad-Leaved Trees, Non-wood forest products from conifers, FAO Forests, Trees & Food.
