In Manor House we have some amazing green spaces so we took advantage of this by having had our regular PACT Wildlife and Foraging walks along the New River path and Finsbury Park!
All of our walks were family friendly and took residents to areas they may not have visited before which helped locals to enjoy the benefits of the great outdoors and building new friendships along the way.
Each walk had an expert guide who helped walkers learn to appreciate their local open spaces by discovering more about the wildlife and edible plants in the area, learning about the environment and improving health and well-being through gentle exercise along the beautiful new river path.
Our foraging walks informed locals on how to safely identify and forage wild plants and they also found out how to prepare food with the ingredients they collected. Each walk offered an opportunity to try something different depending on what plants were in season.
Our wildlife walks focused on biodiversity, and introduced locals to enjoying the huge variety of animals in our area and in helping you how to identify the many species of tree in our area.
The walks were ran by PACT partners Transition Finsbury Park and London Wildlife Trust
