Spring guerrilla planting at Abbey Gardens
The work of FOAG?!

Somewhere spring events

What Will The Harvest Be?

Spring waits for no commissioning process and just in the nick of time it seems that all the pieces of the laborious Abbey Gardens funding and permissions process are slipping into place. SO we are delighted to announce two up and coming events for those who would like to visit the site (before it all changes) and find out more about becoming involved:

Meet the artists: Join the artists and Friends of Abbey Gardens on site.
We will be at Abbey Gardens from 11.30 to 13.00 on Sunday April 5th. We'll have the site plans with us and free seeds to give away to anyone keen to start growing plants for the Harvest Garden - instructions given for gardening newbies!

You are also welcome to join us on the ‘Three Mills Loop’ walk (led by Gordon Joly) which immediately follows the meeting and will take walkers across the Olympic site ending at Three Mills.

Friends of Abbey Gardens Meeting: FOAG will be meeting at the site on Sunday April 26th at 11.30 am, this meeting will provide a progress update for members and a chance to sign up for activities at the garden over the next few months. New members are welcome. Free seeds available.

I think they said yes - green light for What will the Harvest Be?

Finally, some news on our Abbey Gardens public art commission.
At a meeting last week in opulent Stratford Town Hall, Newham Council, us and Friends of Abbey Gardens took a collective deep breath and decided to go for the Harvest Garden we'd proposed - in time to grow fruit and veg there this summer!
