Foraging is a new term for many students. But not anymore for the students at the Gozo College Middle School. With the support of funding from the EU project We Eat Responsibly and a grant from the WasteServ Community Link Project which the EkoSkola/LEAF committee managed to obtain, students from this school embarked on an ambitious project. Students did research on wild plants and invited a well informed speaker, went out to forage wild plants and last but not least cooked local traditional dishes with the foraged wild plants. Opportunities such as the one these students had should inspire all to work hard to preserve nature’s bounty and to revive these old traditions that have been around for centuries but that are being slowly lost.
