Event Details

Organiser: Common Growth

The space is now an oasis of quiet with ponds and raised beds, herbs and swathes of Three-cornered Leek (Allium triquentium) a milder and sweeter form of Wild Garlic. (In deepest lock-down Feed the Hill volunteers harvested this for the hundreds of food-boxes sent out.) The focus is on drought-resistant planting (we have no water supply) and wild-life (hence the insect-friendly lumps of wood).
Call by and collect a teasel plant or two for your own space (a biennial that shoots up to five foot high in its second year - with thistle like seed-heads providing food for birds and bees winter beauty) and/or some fresh bay leaves and rosemary.
The quirky spoons are because Tamsin, in the green-woodworking workshops in Brockwell Park, can't manage symmetry!
