Go Gather – Chestnuts

Please provide a brief description for this image

As Autumn begins in the Southern Hemisphere, it is easy to find chestnuts strewn along the side of the road. This reminds those of us, who are foragers, to get out there and hunt for food across our city. The Green Renaissance team spent two hours before work one morning, demonstrating how easy it is to gather and prepare some tasty chestnuts. Go out and try it yourself.

Tip/Trick – Be spontaneous. We decided to film this clip, half an hour before heading out – the weather was great and the chestnuts had just started to ripen. It isn’t always necessary to overthink and plan each shoot – the real magic sometimes happens in these unexpected moments.
