Food Underfoot…or ‘why looking down is good for you’

  On Sunday, I took my first local weed walk, I called it ‘Food Underfoot‘. I’ve done a few walks further away from Gawler, but thought that we need to make a name for our town. I decided to host it in Henry Chenoweth Park which now has the dubious honour of having the most edible weed species of any of our local parks. Is that a good thing? It is to me! H. C. Park is a pretty, open area bordering the South Para River and sits between the Gawler Community House and the Elderly Centre. It is only 5 – 10 minutes walk from the heart of Gawler too. It is a shortcut between two parts of town and a favourite of dog walkers and cyclists. I knew it would be a bit of a gamble, with the day being on a long weekend and also the day that the football grand final was being held in Melbourne.
