Farm Foreshore Foraging
As part of her Vodafone World of Difference project at Surrey Docks Farm, Germander organised monthly public foreshore foraging events on the farm's Thames foreshore. The aim was to expand her previously-written foreshore verse (from Foghorns and Subsongs), a list of findings and observations on the foreshore.
At these public foraging events, participants were encouraged to look for interesting or unusual items that could be incorporated into the verse, and to collectively try to identify and describe them. Here are the results - the completed verse, and photos of some of the participants and the impressive and fascinating objects they found.
