From January 11th-17th, The Wayward Plant Registry will be occupying a vacant shopfront in Granville Arcade, a 1930s indoor market in Brixton, as part of the Spacemakers initiative. The shop will be transformed into a forest made from recycled x-mas trees and the week will culminate in a community planting in a nearby vacant lot.
Come join us in envisioning the future of ExXmas forest!

How to get to Brixton Village Market:
Brixton Village — also known as Granville Arcade — has entrances off both Atlantic Road and Coldharbour Lane. It’s three minutes walk from Brixton tube station. From the tube station, turn right out of the exit — then take the first right onto Atlantic Road. Walk up past the entrance to the mainline railway station, then look out for the market entrance on the left, just after Popes Road.
