7.00 – 8.30pm
Inspired by Shelagh Wakely’s interests in gardens, medicinal plants and agriculture, this evening provides a chance to enjoy Camden Art Centre’s garden whilst listening to a series of talks:
- Dr. Henry Oakeley, Garden Fellow at the Royal College of Physicians on the history of medicinal plants
- Dr. Susan Parnham, Head of Urbanism Centre for Sustainable Communities at the University of Hertfordshire on Garden Cities and the future of public space design for productive purposes
- Alexa de Ferranti of Lower Hewood Farm, Dorset, an organisation which produces meat and vegetables for sale, alongside a programme of events and residencies that take place in parallel with the everyday functioning of the farm. Alexa is Chair of the Landworkers’ Alliance and will talk about small-scale producers and family farmers using sustainable methods to produce food, fuel and fibre as well as the Landworkers' Alliance campaigns for better policy for agro-ecology and food sovereignty.
The event includes a free drink and a vegetable exchange from Lower Hewood Farm.
