Big Blackberry Pick

Stanmore Country park at the northern end of the Jubilee line was the venue for our annual blackberry pick on 14th August.  The park is a beautiful open space which is protected and environmentally managed, so the flora and fauna can thrive.16 of us of all ages made our way courageously through nettles and brambles to pick sun-ripened berries.  The weather was kind to us and the ground, which can be muddy, was firm and dry.  On the way to our chosen foraging area, we passed bird and bat boxes…See More

Nettle Foraging & Making Pesto

Four women and a baby went foraging at the Welsh Harp reservoir last week to make nettle pesto for our stall at the Mapesbury Residents Association AGM.The Welsh Harp is Brent's only site of special scientific interest, so it was sad to see litter and debris - a sign that people are camping out there, as in many open areas these days. When picking nettles its best to avoid areas by paths prone to dog poo, but we wondered where the rough sleepers may have been too! A kestrel hovering nearby…See More
