When the Carbon Action Team were in Dalbeattie, as well as helping households measure and monitor their carbon emissions, they made available many other things to help us improve our carbon footprint. One of these measures was encouraging us to buy locally and source local produce and plants wherever possible. They compiled a selection of wild food recipes based on plants which grow abundantly around Dalbeattie. The collection and cooking of wild food used to be a common activity for all country folk. Many people alive today will no doubt remember collecting wild food.
The Carbon Action Team's aim was to encourage everyone to get back out there and try the wild food available around Dalbeattie. It's free, highly nutritious, tasty, fun and low carbon!
