WILD FOOD IN THE CITY

Want to fill your plate with food that is sustainably, ethically and locally grown or foraged? Think you can't do it because you live in a city? Meet Oliver Brown, from Fat of the Land and Sea. Oliver has just finished spending a year living on wild and homegrown food, while living in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. Oliver's diet was grown, foraged, fished, hunted and bartered - all while he worked his day job in the city.  It can be done, and in this four-hour workshop Oliver is showing us how.
