Acorns: Packaged food right now at your local park!

Acorns are a traditional food source in Europe, Asia, and North America -- they're very high in protein and more nutritious than most grains, and make an excellent addition to the diet. As a bonus, here in Aotearoa, you don't need to fight the squirrels for them, so they are easy to harvest. Learn about selecting the right oak tree to collect acorns from, and how to dry, soak, and process them for food. We'll bake a loaf of wheat-acorn sourdough at the end for everyone to try! Learn how to take advantage of this underutilised resource. Limit 8 attendees -- please RSVP with Melissa at
