This walking tour, led by forager Peter Langlands, explores the diversity of foraged foods that are available in the Lyttelton harbour basin. You will learn how to identify the main types of foraged greens and foods available, as well as how to avoid poisonous species. We will also show you some quick and practical ways of preparing foraged foods, and you'll get to taste the fruits of your labour.

Afterwards, you may enjoy an optional lunch at award-winning Roots Restaurant, where chef Guilio Sturla uses foraging as an integral part of his restaurant culture.

This event is presented by Ground Food Tours as part of FESTA 2016.

FESTA is a vibrant weekend festival celebrating the unique urban environment of Christchurch and the creative urban regeneration that has emerged from it.

The theme for FESTA 2016 is ‘We Have the Means’, which focuses on citizen-initiated urban regeneration and sustainability through the reuse of waste materials in design. The ‘means’ we are celebrating includes both the people of Christchurch and visitors to the city, who care about the city’s development and flourishing, and the materials that we are able to repurpose and divert from landfill, which are then used to create functioning beautiful and interesting objects for Christchurch.

Our headline event, Lean Means – a spectacular temporary city made from ‘waste’ materials, is set to attract thousands and is live for one night only on Saturday 22 October (rain date 23 October).
