Wizard School talk: magic grains

When we say wheat what do you think of? Golden fields? Flour? Bread?

I bet you don't think of seeds? Each grain of wheat is a seed which if planted will grow into a new plant and many new seeds. Science? Magic? Both?

Come along to our workshop at The Skip Garden to learn about history of grains and how civilisation was built upon them; the science behind crops, the soil and growing; and the mystical folklore and their significance in communities throughout the ages.

Plant your own ancient and modern wheat seeds to grow this coming year and even mill some into flour to take home and bake with.

This workshop will be lead by scientist, storyteller, and sustainable food nerd Abi Glencross who has a true passion for all things that grow. Once a cellular agriculturalist, Abi now works on a number of projects which aim to promote a more sustainable approach to growing and eating. Her most recent projects are Future Farm Labs and Sustainable Food Story.
