Earth Day is an annual event advocating for environmental protection internationally. To honour this historic day we’ll be holding a series of events focusing on practical and playful actions we can take to support community healing and ecosystem recovery.

Activities will focus on bringing people together to foster connection with our planet and all the living relations that exist because of it. We invite you to get muddy and mindful about ways to protect our planet, strengthen our local responses to climate change, and learn how to advocate for safer futures for all.

Activities programme:

  • 1pm – 5pm: Traces of the Future installation open – read & reflect in our city-garden book nook

  • 1pm – 2:30pm: Planting salad gardens in tetra packs and seed sowing in discarded objects (bring items along you want to plant in!)

  • 2:45pm – 3:30pm: Talk from Dawn Dublin of Black Butterfly, an Afrodescendant cultural heritage and social enterprise focusing on food sovereignty, community resilience & environmental justice

  • 4:15 – 5pm: Woodcraft workshop with sculptor and musician Rafael Berrio of Future Roots

All activities are free to drop into, as well as family and pet friendly so as many of us as possible can take part.
