Friday 4 December
Visit the community garden and get your own currant cuttings
Where? West Norwood Bzz Garage, Rothschild Street
On Friday morning 4 December, between 10am and 12noon, we invite you to come down to the Bzz Garden vegetable/fruit hub - which is behind the bus garage on Rothschild Street. Open Orchard will be pruning the currant bushes and you can pick up some shoots to propagate your own plants. It's easier than you think! You can choose between black, red or white ones, whichever you prefer. You can also find out what else is happening at the Bzz Garage and what we've been up to recently.
What is the Bzz Garage?
West Norwood Bzz Garage is a community garden around the West Norwood Bus Garage, creating bee-friendly habitats and growing vegetable and fruit crops. Our garden hosts one of the local Open Orchard's and boasts two works by the local poetry project PoetrySlabs: their amazing installation of The Gardener’s Daughter by Tennyson. and London’s first catalytic poem, “A Rare Bee” by Carol Anne Duffy.
Created in 2014 as one of many community-led initiatives of Open Works and supported by the team at Station-to-Station our local Business Improvement Districtare, we are fully volunteer-run. We usually meet up on weekends year-round – everyone with an interest in wildlife and gardening is welcome, no matter how experienced you are.
