Beneath the Willow
Sat 11 June, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm BST
A fun filled day of family activities centred around an ever expanding community garden in a lush green housing estate in the heart of Hackney. Forget London Fields this is the real hidden gem of Hackney Central.
During the day there will be willow craft where you can make a bird feeder to encourage small birds (and quite possibly the parrots) into your garden, along with simple willow stars for the younger attendees to make and dreamcatchers. Combined with a professional storyteller weaving his magic and mysteries, herbal teas from the herbs grown in the estate, cup cake decorating, garden games and a peaceful stroll through this hidden gem of a garden this is a few hours you will want to spend away from the hurly burly of streets. The estate is also part of the current Space Explorer exhibition.
