Sonny Khan's: nettle eating challenge
'Sonny Khan from South Lakes Action on Climate Change underwent sponsored nettle eating at Abbot Hall Park in Kendal on Saturday 23rd April 2011. Each leaf had to be carefully chewed to avoid stinging the inside of his mouth, we asked people to sponsor Sonny for each raw leaf he ate! We also served up nettle soup to the public to encourage donations and to support eating local, sustainable food!'
