Foraging Calendula

On Sunday we drove out to a WWOOF farm outside Bologna, La dimora dell’Essere, to scope it out.  It ended up being one of their open days and there were about 20 people there for a pot luck lunch.  We were invited to stay and immediately put to work harvesting wild flowers to put in a salad (including the calendula pictured above).  It was a serendipitous afternoon.
