To accompany our plans for a Woolwich Common mini-orchard Avant-Gardening have started a programme of participatory arts based on the Nightingale Estate. Our first project was working with children resident on the estate to create a new banner to promote the community garden and mini-orchard.  Our lead artist Polly worked with the children to create some fantastical and magical trees which have been integrated into the banner design.  The banner will be on display outside the Welcare offices from Wednesday 2 June as part of the Nightingale Spring Party 12pm - 4pm

If you want to get involved with the Nightingale community garden and mini-orchard come along to the spring party or call Welcare 020 8854 3865
