It’s all melted away now, but for a few days Art in the Park and Burgess Park were a beautiful winter wonderland!

We had a lovely view of the frosty park from our studios.
2We covered up our heart garden plants – hope they’re ok under there! (And we’re very thankful for our greenhouses and polytunnels!)
3Looks like we had a furry visitor in the snow…. Maybe the fox is back!
4Some very chilly herbs.
5Burgess Park looking very pretty in the snow.

The Roots is an exciting new project from Southwark Pensioners Centre. The project, which began this summer, tells the story of Walworth Road based G. Baldwin & Co and the customers who have frequented the shop over its long history. Art in the Park has been lucky to be a part of this project, and has run a series of projects to support The Roots.

We have run a series of Gardening Workshops, learning about plants and their uses and exploring the flora of Burgess Park.




And back in July, the Medical Herbalist and the Cuming Museum Youth Panel visited Art in the Park to share some herbal remedies and recipes with young people from Southwark.


We’ll be running another workshop on November 26th. To find out more about this great project, others events they are running and to see more photos from our work with them please visit www.therootsstory.co.uk.
