A busy weekend started at the top of Broadway Market. We’d harvested some flowers from the meadow (with the support of the Council and Parks) as they were fading a few weeks ago and wanted to show how to prolong their lives by turning them into dyes. Debbie managed to roll a table all the way from Wilton, an achievement in itself. A stunning sharp, bright day meant streams of people were walking through the park. We persuaded some of them to stop.
Cordwainers Garden I am a community garden in Hackney, started in early 2011 on a patch of disused land at the London College of Fashion - previously frequented by, dog-walkers, drunks and flashers. I am now a thriving garden with sixteen small allotments, a pond, beehive and a dye bed.
