On August 14th, as part of our programme of events The Roots held a series of talks at the InSpire community space in Walworth. These talks spanned the history of the local area, the history of G. Baldwin & Co and herbs and home remedies. We also had a poetry reading, quizzes, hand massages, sarsaparilla tasting and even some plants for people to take home with them at the end of the day!

It was an interesting and informative day, and thank you so much to the speakers (and masseuse!) who made it possible. Thank you Steve Dagnall, Professor Patricia Dark, Lucreta La Pierre, Mala Bissoon, Paula Appleton and Marva Donaldson.
