A series of seasonal talks at Mossley Mill start this evening Thursday 6 September at 7pm.
The first talk will be provided by Forage Ireland and will be full of interesting tips on how to forage for local produce. Foraging for wild food is a fun way to find tasty berries and the talk will introduce participants to the joys of cooking with locally found plants. The speakers will also show how foraging can be an excellent way to get in touch with the sights, sounds, smells and feel of the environment all around us.
Lindsay Matthews, Biodiversity Officer at Newtownabbey Borough Council says ‘Foraging is an excellent example of how everyone can live better lives by doing things for themselves. Gathering food shows what we can get from our local environment right on our doorstep.’
The talk will be from 7pm and whilst admission is free, booking is advisable as places are limited. For more information and bookings please contact Lindsay Matthews 028 9034 0069 or email email@example.com.
These talks are part of a Heritage Lottery Funded project involving the local community in learning about Mossley Mill and its surroundings. More workshops, talks and family days will be held throughout Autumn and Winter. To find out more please visit www.newtownabbbey.gov.uk/museumatthemill.
