Information for Monday’s seminar at Flogsta Food

On Monday afternoon we will be having our second seminar, outside in Flogsta Food. Here is a map:

https://maps.google.se/maps?q=59.84959,17.58482&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x465fcb98db915a31:0x284b665ebbb2c930,%2B59%C2%B0+50'+59.18%22,+%2B17%C2%B0+35'+4.40%22&gl=se&ei=mS3OT8XcLs-N4gScmIS3DA&oi=geocode_result&ved=0CAsQ8gEwAA

We will be taking two seperate groups, one by bike and one by foot, each leaving Blåsenhus around 12:00. If you cannot make it to the morning lecture and need to meet us there, please arrive by 13:00. If you want to take the bus, take bus #2 or 5 to Flogsta Centrum. Walk towards the three-story red brick houses. Behind house #81 is the garden.

The compulsory part of the seminar consists of a tour of Flogsta Food and Q&A, followed by a group discussion. Afterwards we will work practically in the garden - this part is not compulsory, though highly recommended.

So wear some clothes which are suitable for gardening and potentially poor weather and bring something to the fika if you wish.

Wild and Edible Plants

Hej!

I found these digital recipe booklets with a few suggestions of wild and edible plants and how they can be used. I thought it might be of interest to some of you. Great work today, see you tomorrow!

Cheers!

Tuesday lecture and Wednesday field trip

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that Tuesday's lecture will be in the Uppsala Learning Lab (hus 21:241, Blasenhus), and it starts at 10.00 sharp, not 10.15. Please remember also to do the pre-task for Seminar 2 beforehand.

On Wednesday we go to Stockholm for the field trip. The bus will depart from Geocentrum at 8.00 sharp! Our very nice bus driver Peter will provide a (free) light breakfast. Bring your bathing suit and also your rain gear - the weather could go either way. We should be back in Uppsala for around 17.30, and afterwards we will go to Upplands Nation for anyone who wants to join.

If anyone is meeting us in Stockholm at the first site, the address is Källtorps trädgård, Ältavägen 105, 13133 Nacka.
