As a followup to the Union Street Urban Orchard, we're back at 100 Union Street to transform a derelict site into the Urban Physic Garden! The garden will be shaped by the hospital and the pharmacy, with a focus on medicinal plants and herbs, celebrating the health and wellbeing of our cities and environments.
There will be a community build from now through June 10, creating a hospital-themed landscape out of reclaimed timber, salvaged materials and donated plants. Please sign up to help out! It's a work in progress and we need your brains and brawn.
We'd also love if you could pledge a plant - we have a list of easy to grow plants, selected for their medicinal properties:
You can keep up with updates by following us on facebook or twitter.
The garden will be open from June 11-August 15, and will be host to a summer festival of talks, workshops and events as well as a cafe using home-grown herbs by Rambling Restaurant. If your group would like to get involved with our summer programme of events, we'd love to hear from you! Get in touch at email@example.com.
Thanks so much - we look forward to seeing you back on Union Street!
