Exercise Book of Traditions 2010

“Tradīciju Burtnīca: Vācēju kultūra Viduskurzemē / Exercise Book of Traditions: Foraging in Central Kurzeme” was published late October 2010.

Following the midsummer Herbologies expedition in Latvia, a printed booklet was published bi-lingually in Latvian and English, and a small section in German. It features a selection of interviews with Aizpute & Alsunga residents, plus photos of intercultural encounters, and several short articles by expedition participants.
