Spread a little happiness on Van Gogh Walk 29th May

Detail from Van Gogh 'Sunflowers' 1888
The National Gallery, London

Did you know that sunflowers and the colour yellow were symbols of happiness and there are at least eleven Van Gogh paintings of sunflowers?

Join us on new community street Van Gogh Walk to sow the cheerful flowers that Van Gogh planted and painted; meet gardening team Streetscape; learn a bit about horticulture; help look after the new plants on Van Gogh Walk and enjoy spending time with friends and neighbours.

Drop in any time during the morning Wednesday 29th May 8am-12, all welcome.

"I’m doing a lot of gardening and have sown sweet peas, poppies and reseda, now we just have to wait and see what comes of it."

Vincent van Gogh, 30 April 1874, London
