Talks offering numerous ideas of alternative plants to grow as edibles. The April date gives ideas of what to plant and the September date offers advice on what to do with the harvest. James Wong is an ethnobotanist, television presenter and best-selling author based in London. Breaking free from the 'dig for victory' time warp of allotment staples, he reveals the vast array of 21st-century crops that flourish outdoors, even in a blustery north Atlantic climate. From goji berries to food-mile free sweet potatoes, his revolutionary approach to edible gardening shows how to grow, cook and eat all manner of superfood crops that are just as easy and far more exciting to grow than the ration book favourites.
