Students studying BTEC Hospitality at Barking and Dagenham College picked the 45kg of organic strawberries used to make strawberryade.

They walked from the College to the Growing Communities Starter Farm in Dagenham to pick the fruit.

The students took the fruit to the Square Root factory to watch the berries being squashed, pressed and turned into drink.
