The colours of the season shone bright at a community allotment fun day.
Forest Farm Peace Garden, Hazelbrouck Gardens, Hainault, hosted an “Abundance Day” to celebrate the bounty of summer harvest.
The event, held on Sunday, featured demonstrations of foraging and fermented food making, a Love Food, Hate Waste workshop on cooking up pickled apples and apple sauce and live music courtesy of Redbridge Music Lounge’s performers.
Youngsters also enjoyed messy play, creating “veggie creatures” and face painting.
Anna Konarska, the attraction’s project co-ordinator, said: “We had a fantastic day in the garden, celebrating the abundance of the harvest.
