A lunch made from produce gathered on Bankside has been staged in Red Cross Garden.
An 'interactive harvesting walk', part of the Edible Bankside initiative, set out at lunchtime on Wednesday from Bankside Community Space.
Helen John (aka Hej) of Bankside Open Spaces Trust, led the party from the Bankside Community Space for a look at the Brookwood Triangle garden opposite The Bell in Webber Street to begin harvesting. This was followed by a visit to Redman Green in Borough High Street.
The harvest of local food included courgettes, runner beans, cabbage, herbs, chives and tomatoes which were turned into a risotto at Red Cross Garden.
Local-grown rhubarb provided the pudding.
