Hunting for edible plants with London’s urban foragers

London (AFP) – Kenneth Greenway says he is inundated with requests for the foraging courses that he and his team run at the Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park in east London. “We can’t do enough foraging tours,” he says. “I guess the recent surge in interest is as a result of the recent pandemic, with a lot more people spending time in parks, thinking about plants, wondering what they can do with them.” Foragers touch, smell, pick and taste a number of plants on the three-hour tours. “I’ve just loved it, every minute of it” says George Page, a course attendee. “It empowers you but also it makes you feel you’re really part of nature,” says Rosa Nguyen, another attendee.
