This month we’re delighted to have south-east London’s very own pioneer urban forager and pickler, Penny Greenhough, coming to speak to us! Penny has been described as an “urban shrub rummaging pioneer”, forgaing for wild fruits and nuts and transforming them into an array of truly local, homemade preserves.
Also known as the Peckham Pickler, Penny forages in the unlikely, but surprisingly bountiful, urban environment and experiments with pickling and preserving her finds in new and creative ways.
Penny is going to talk about how to forage locally and will tell us about the local community projects she is involved with. She’ll also bring a selection of homemade pickles, jams and jellies for us to try, all produced using locally sourced fruit.
You can find out a bit more about Penny on her Facebook page.
Better still, come along on 19 September! And bring bread, cheese and even wine to go with your pickles!
At our usual home of Welsh Borough Chapel, 90 Southwark Bridge Road, SE1 0EX. Guests very welcome if you would like to come try us out! 7.30-9.30pm, doors open from 7pm. Guests pay £3.
