About this Event

Join wild food enthusiast, Ken Greenway, for a foraging experience at the amazing award-winning Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park. Ken will share his love and deep knowledge of foraging and will introduce you to the everyday plants you can eat, opening your eyes to a new world of possibilities and flavours. He will share his knowledge of seasonal wild foods as well as where and when to pick them.

Looking after the nature reserve and heritage site is a way of life for Ken. You will join him at this guided walk sharing knowledge and the spirit of exploration of this unique sanctuary for history, nature and wild food. The walk is limited to 15 participants so an intimate experience in the outdoors will make it easy to ask questions and meet others in the group.

The journey includes:

  • Make your own choice of wild tea on arrival from a selection of plants collected from the park
  • Take your place in a guided walk to safely identify wild foods and enjoy samples of the plants along the way
  • Learn tips on where and how to forage
  • Understand the health benefits of wild foods
  • Take home samples to turn into your own wild creations
  • Ask Ken questions
  • Receive and use a digital foraging booklet
  • Numbers limited to 15 | Dogs on leads are welcome
