Families from Tower Hamlets attended a fun day, in spite of a morning of gales and downpours, focussed on health and well-being.
The day combined climbing sessions, with a nature discovery walk along the local New River path to the London Wildlife Trust’s recently opened Woodberry Wetlands, yoga, and garden activities - exploring the Castle Garden, seed sowing, harvesting leaves and herbs, making pizzas with healthy garden grown toppings, firing them in the cob oven and eating together at the end!
Drop by on Saturday 18th June to take a fresh look at the garden accompanied by the poems of Ellen Cranitch, Poet in Residence for the day, and other poets.
Contribute to a community poem inspired by the garden, the historic building and climbing!
There will also be art and crafts activities for children.
This year for May Day we will be celebrating nettles!
Join us to celebrate the common stinging nettle - find out how they are beneficial to our health, about the wildlife they support, and how they can be used to make clothes, beer and more!
If you've got some clothes that you don't wear/need anymore then why not bring them along to the clothes swap event?...they might be just the thing that someone else is looking for, and you could find something new for yourself there too!
An equinox is an astronomical event in which the plane of Earth's equator passes through the center of the Sun, which occurs twice each year, around 20 March and 23 September. On an equinox, day and night are of approximately equal duration all over the planet. The name is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night), because at the equinox the night and day are nearly equally long.
