The new FLAVOURS project bursts into life this autumn with a series of activities exploring the great tastes of Dorset!

A series of taster events such as farm walks, countryside picnics and other related events will kick off the conversations and explorations over the autumn 2023.

The Inside Out Dorset Festival in September will then create the space for more food and landscape explorations at Wild Woodbury near Bere Regis from 20th – 24th September 2023. Soup and a Story is just one of the many creative performances, installations and activities you can experience, all for free!

The vital ingredient for this project is an enthusiastic partnership between the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty team, Dorset Race Equality Council, Dorset Food & Drink and Activate Performing Arts, with support from the Farming in Protected Landscapes Programme and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The project aims to engage a wider range of people in the food-related landscape heritage of the Dorset and Cranborne Chase AONBs. It will make new connections with ethnic minority communities in Dorset, using food as a common language to explore green spaces within the protected landscapes.
