About

Come and join the walk to learn how to identify native and non-native trees, explore the 'beauty' of Bermondsey and share in some foraged fruits from the areas abundance of plants. The walk includes a guided tour of the area and the exhibition by artist Charlie Fox.

Inspired by Ada Salter’s establishment of the Beautification Committee in Southwark in the 1920s, the Gallery exhibition Common & Garden and walk delve into aspects of togetherness, thinking of art and nature as a communitarian, aesthetic project; cultivating and nurturing new forms of representation; the common, with its flowerbeds, weeds and non-native plants, a field of pollen and scent permeates our everyday city routine. In the ‘lungs of London’, our vital green spaces, we reach towards a state of peace and equilibrium while championing the population of street trees and plants.

Tickets are £6 and are available via Eventbrite.
Location: Garden entrance of CGP London // The Gallery, Sunday 3 September, 2-3.30pm

Proceeds from the walk help support the work of CGP London and InspiralLondon Project.
