SEED, PRESS, BOMB, WALK, TALK, TATE


As part of the Tate Local programme public works will run an artist lead walk in the area surrounding Tate Britain. Our walk - similar to the walk we are preparing in Hackney Wick with Lea Bank Square - will be in two parts. We will be making seed bombs this coming Monday and organise a walk later in the year to drop them while visiting horticulturally interested people and projects around Tate Britain.

Join us for the first part of the seed bomb making on Monday the 25th of October, from 11.00-16.00 to compress wildflower seed packs and contribute to conversations and exchange about local green spaces. We will be running the workshop in two locations first at Tate Britain, Manton Lawn from 11:00 - 1:30 and afterwards at Millbank Estate, Reynolds House courtyard, Erasmus Street from 14:00 - 16:00.

Horticultural expertise will be provided by gardener Hamish Liedel.

To find out more or take part call Ashley on 020 7887 3947 or email ashley.mccormick@tate.org.uk
The workshop and walk is for free but booking is required.
