Walking Tour of Deptford’s Green Spaces.
Owen Hodgkinson from Assembly will be instigating a walk and a discussion about Deptford’s green spaces. The walk is an investigation to map Deptfords green Spaces – discussing what part they play in Deptfords urban environment, what unseen politics is fought on them, how they change, how there lost and how they are found. Most importantly how they could be connected. From 2pm to 4pm, a workshop hosted by Bridget Mckenzie of Beuysterous will aim to tease out these connections and links. (See details below.)
The tour will start at 10am at the entrance of Old Tidemill School on Frankham Street and will first visit the Wonky Prong community garden in Crossfields Estate.
The tour will then move onto the Deptford Creekside Centre and then to Sue Godfrey Nature Park. After which, the ‘Don’t Dump on Deptford’ campaign will be discussed on the land next to St Paul’s Church, followed by visiting another campaign at Sayes Court Garden, a campaign to reinstate John Evelyn’s 17th Century garden.
Next on the list is a community garden taking the name of this renowned horticulturist, the John Evelyn community garden on the Pepys Estate founded by local residents in 2005.
Heading back towards Deptford the tour will drop by The Albany garden and café, to see some new feathered arrivals with the added opportunity of some delicious food at the launch of the Yam Yam festival. The tour will end back at Old Tidemill School to find out what has been going on in the Wildlife garden since the school closed down.

Beuysterous Workshop.

Human wellbeing depends on tree health, and for this, trees depend on the integrity of their communities. Trees need each other partly because they are helpfully connected beneath the soil by fungus. This workshops explores the the rooty, rhizomatic kinds of fungus called Mychorrizae that help trees thrive. What can we learn from Mychorrizae to design healthier communities of people? Responding to the Just Dis Trees in the square, which are all about trees and community, come to create an installation of nodes and threads amongst trees in the garden of the Old Tidemill School.
Facilitated by Bridget McKenzie, founder of Beuysterous, a campaign of creative actions for trees.
