The initiative has been funded by the Mayor of London and Seeds of Change and co-ordinated by the Plunkett Foundation, Growing Communities and London Food Link.

Sue Kenten, chief executive for DASL, said: “It will be great to expand the use of our growing areas with expert guidance and financial help.”

Rosie Boycott, chair of the London Food Board, said: “We are delighted to be able to provide practical support to this crop of budding food entrepreneurs such as DASL in Newham.
