This community heritage project was funded by the Heritage Lottery fund. 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.

The Roots  provided opportunities for people of all ages to volunteer. Training, learning and creative opportunities for local people included: heritage research and talks; learning how to record oral histories; contributing their memories, getting involved in art workshops, developing a community herb plot and a family heritage day!
