• Creating a forest garden

21 September 2019 - 10:00 to 15:00

Imagine growing your own apples, berries, rhubarb and strawberries. Or artichokes, hops, rocket and thyme. By using plants with different heights, you'd be using all the space in your garden. AND with a single blitz of planting, you'd enjoy a rolling harvest throughout the year, every year. Come and learn about forest gardening - a no-dig approach that's kind to wildlife and to your back. Creating A Forest Garden is for people who are truly passionate about plants, especially the edible ones.

£200 or £60 (concessions). Three pay by volunteering places (first come, first served). More information here.

• The Time Portals Exhibition

21 September 2019 - 11:00 to 22 September 2019 - 17:00

Octavia E Butler had a vision of time as circular, giving meaning to acts of courage and persistence. In the face of social and environmental injustice, setbacks are guaranteed, no gains are made or held without struggle, but societal woes will pass and our time will come again. In this sense, history offers solace, inspiration, and perhaps even a prediction of what to prepare for.

The Time Portals exhibition, at Furtherfield Gallery and online spaces, celebrates the 150th anniversary of Finsbury Park. As one of London’s first ‘People’s Parks’, designed for free movement and thought, it is the perfect location to create a mass investigation of radical pasts and futures, circling back to the start as we move forwards.  

Each artwork invites audience participation - either in its creation or in the development of a parallel ‘people’s’ work - turning every idea into a portal to countless more imaginings of past and future urban green spaces and beyond. 

The exhibition runs from 9 May to 20 October 2019, open Saturdays and Sundays 11-5 or by appointment.
