The final day of LCC Green Week 2014, saw us go feral, with workshops inspired by ideas around learning from and reconnecting with nature. There was even an insect lunch on the menu!

The day began though with an inspirational lecture from John Mathers of the Design Council, who spoke about the work the organisation does in championing great design that improves people’s lives.

A permaculture workshop with Maddy Harland, co-founder of Permaculture Magazine and Fergus Drennan and James Wood, creators of The Foraged Book Project, explored sustainable principles, growing in small spaces and natural colour use in dye conversion and paint making. The Foraged Book Project is a hand-crafted book made entirely from foraged and wild material.

Inspired by a United Nations report on incorporating insects into the diet, as a means of improving nutrition in developing nations, Ento’s mission is to get people to eat insects, believing the nutritional and environmental benefits will make insect meals a staple in supermarkets by 2020.
