You may know it as a public enemy and a pest, but this week we will be hosting a very special foraging walk to pick Japenese Knotweed, followed by a syrup-making workshop

Japanese knotweed is best know in this country as an invasive plant that needs to be controlled and it is obligatory to prevent the spread. Read more. This month we’re hosting a special double bill of Japanese Knotweed events.

Following our urban foraging talk on the 22nd, we’re going to be heading out to Eastbrookend Country Park to pick this infamous plant, which we’ll later use to create syrup at the Millenium Centre.

Meet at Dagenham East Station (District Line) at 1.30 pm or at 2pm at the Millenium Centre in Eastbrookend Country Park, Dageham Road, RM7 0SS.
