Every Saturday, 2-5pm
Our new season of weekly Saturday afternoon volunteer sessions at the Garden has started again. If you’d like to help look after the plants at the Curve Garden, try growing herbs and vegetables, learn new skills or get healthy working outdoors, come on a Saturday and join in.
If you can complete our online volunteer form in advance, that helps us know to expect you.
Then just come along wearing comfortable shoes and clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty.
As always, everyone is welcome – the more the merrier!
Sunday 8 & Monday 9 June
‘How is poverty experienced? What are the daily hardships faced by those who have experienced homelessness or migration?’
Julia Mason is a Hackney based artist with a nursing and public health background, whose work is influenced by her experience of working with children and families living in poor communities.
You are invited to the Garden on Sunday 8 & Monday 9 May to contribute to Julia’s new work – 1000 Petty Indignities – by cutting open one of the stitched cuts in her fabric installation, or perhaps sewing one shut.
You can also take part in a film of the event to provide a record of shared conversations and stories, as the cloth is sewn and shaped by many different hands.
