Otago Polytechnic

You too can forage around Dunedin for all things edible and nice now that a group of Otago Polytechnic students is on the case!

The Communication Design students are creating a 'foraging map' that will illustrate all the edible weeds and surplus produce around Dunedin.

The students hope the map will encourage people to interact over a city asset.

The resource will highlight which weeds are edible and pinpoint roadside fruit trees and community vegetable gardens.

The map will, of course, include Otago Polytechnic's Living Campus garden, where everyone's welcome to collect and eat the produce.

If residents want to add a foraging site or community garden to the map, email danieljh@windowslive.com.
