Date: Saturday 30th August 2008
Time: 11.30am to 5pm
This day outing is to a Community Forest Garden in North London. The day will include a guided walk, food sharing, a short talk by LINE, and a hands-on approach to learning about conservation. Possible activities (depending on what will need doing) include: pruning, weeding, mulching and picking fruit. Please aim to arrive at 11.30am for a 12 midday start. Sturdy shoes are recommended (We suggest also bringing waterproofs, just in case!). Please also bring a packed lunch to share (organic, if possible). There will be the option of zuhr/midday prayers at the site, for those who would like to take part.
Forest gardens are designed to be sustainable, edible landscapes designed to work like the natural structure of forests. Community Forest Gardening is about people and their communities, learning and working with nature not against it.
