PUBLISHED: 09:00 13 July 2016
Residents were given the chance to wander through the borough’s green spaces and forage for ingredients as well as learn more about their local history.
Foraging tours were organised by Capital Growth, a London based food growing network, and were held at the Linkway Plantastic Prescription Gardens, in Groveway, Dagenham, on Saturday.
The walks were split into morning and afternoon sessions and included information about plant identification, recipes and the published health benefits of foraging.
Scores of residents from Dagenham enjoyed the day-long event, which included a picnic between the two sessions.
The event at the gardens was a part of the London-wide Capital Growth Healthy Living Day, which held several similar activities across different parts of the capital.
