May 15th will see the second of the series of guided local nature and heritage walks setting off from Tate South Lambeth Library.
The walk includes a tour and visit to ’Roots & Shoots’, an inspirational long-established local charity in Kennington that trains people in landscape skills. It is based at a site on Walnut Tree Walk that initially, back in 1982, was derelict with just a basic building and is now a transformed established space.
Here’s the programme
Monday May 15th – meet outside Tate South Lambeth Library at 1pm
Go on a gentle walk towards Vauxhall, through Bonnington Square, past Vauxhall City Farm, then up towards Kennington to “Roots and Shoots” in Walnut Tree Walk in plenty of time for a tour and talk by the director who planted many of the trees on the site, including the founding walnut tree in 1982..
The session will end with some local refreshments and creative sharing.
Some advice – bring water with you and wear comfortable shoes.
