Abbey Gardens new season

A little nudge to anyone in or near East London who feels like a bit of gardening:

The new season is well underway at Abbey Gardens, a communal veetable garden which we designed in 2008/9 and which goes from strength to strength each year, now run by an active local Friends group, and - as always - open to absolutely everyone regardless of green fingers or not!

Details on what's happening when are here, or just drop in.
Open to anyone gardening sessions take place on
Tuesdays 1pm-3pm
Thursdays 4pm-7pm
Saturdays 10am-4pm
All tools / guidance are provided free.

Acorn Bank, Penrith - National Trust residency

I'm very happy to be this year's Dorothy Una Ratcliffe Fellow! (that sounds rather grand doesnt it?!)

This means I'm artist-in-residence at the National Trust's lovely Acorn Bank property near Penrith during the summer, culminating in a show there from August to October '17. Dorothy was its owner for a relatively short while before it was the Trust's, and she was by all accounts quite a character (see right).
I know we would have got on!
