Herb Gardening at Art in the Park

Herb Gardening at Art in the Park

The first of The Root’s events was held on a (rather wet!) day in July, with an introduction to herb gardening and wild herbs in the lush gardens at Art in the Park in Burgess Park.

The Roots was a Southwark Pensioners Centre project, run in partnership with Julia Honess and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, about the story of Walworth Road-based G. Baldwin and Co. Working with volunteers from the local community, the project tells the story of Walworth Road based G. Baldwin & Co, one of the oldest and most established herbalists in London, and the many customers who have frequented the shop over its long history.
