The Habits of Weeds is a free online three-part event featuring a new intervention by artist Uriel Orlow.
The flourishing of urban plants and wildflowers in our towns and cities speaks of resilience, adaptation, survival and regeneration. This online event, with contributions from Sophie Leguil, Freelance Botanist Consultant; artist Uriel Orlow; and Dr. Nicolette Perry, Director of Dilston Physic Garden, will consider how urban plants, often cast aside as ‘weeds’, can be beneficial to both our ecosystem and our health.
The event will explore the connection between gardening and well-being, and the medicinal and healing properties of wild plants, inviting a new appreciation of our forgotten flora.
We want our events to be inclusive and accessible for everyone. Live transcription will be available during each of our online events. We’d be happy to arrange a BSL translator too. You can let us know about any accessibility requirements you have when you book your ticket.
For anyone unable to book online we recommend calling 07730 094846 and we will organise your tickets.
