Cooking with Nettles

Maia Magoga & Thamesmead Social Gardens

Sunday 30 July, 11 am to 1 pm
At the Edible Garden, Maran Way. DA18 4BP

"Cooking with Nettles" was a workshop led by artist and cook Maia Magoga and Thamemsead Social Gardens to learn how to make pasta from scratch - but with a twist!

Together we used a common yet overlooked weed that grows all over Bexley - Nettle* - to make our pasta dough, before cooking, eating, and sharing wild recipes together. 

This was the third event for beneath the pavement, the marshes, a new creative programme bringing artists, activists and ecologists together with local environmental and community groups working in north Bexley, to explore the ground beneath our feet.⁠
