About the event

A few months ago, with help from the local Walthamstow community, we planted a sunflower meadow on what will soon be a community garden, on the corner of Mission Grove and Palmerston Road, next to Mission Grove Primary School. 

We are now in the process of transforming this space into a community garden. We'll be planting bulbs ready for next spring, creating a carpet of colour to brighten up this corner of Walthamstow.

We'll also collect the sunflower seed heads and dig out the plants. Can you help? Come along on Sunday 12 November to get involved. You can take away the seed heads you collect and plant your own sunflowers, as well as help plant bulbs to bloom next year.

There will also be a seed dyeing workshop run by Anna Kasmir. This will start at 1pm. Places are restricted for this, so please do RSVP if you're interested in taking part. If you just want to collect seeds or help with the planting, feel free to turn up any time between 12noon and 2pm.
