The FLAVOURS project is creating fresh avenues for individuals from ethnic minority and refugee backgrounds, as well as community groups and Dorset residents, to experience and connect with the rich landscapes of Dorset.
We’re on a mission to help them explore a variety of farms and open spaces right in their own local environment.
Food will be the focus of all our activities – to share food and drink in all its glorious expressions, from picnics, shared lunches and recipe swaps, to baking and cooking together, sharing food stories and traditions!
About the Project
The vital ingredient for this project is an enthusiastic partnership between the Dorset National Landscapes 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.
Having got a taste for the Dorset landscape, FLAVOURS looks forward to co-creating a delicious mix of food and landscape activities with community groups and Dorset Race Equality Council during the autumn of 2023 and through the seasons of 2024.
