Plant with us on Tuesday 20 May

Drop in on Tuesday afternoon for our Chelsea Fringe event to create a spectacularly cheerful, colourful and tasty summer on Van Gogh Walk:

- plant poppies, sunflowers and incredible edibles;

- meet local community enterprise Streetscape and find out about apprenticeships and opportunities in landscape gardening;

- remember the young artist who lived here, loved nature and later painted world famous sunflowers;

- sow poppies to commemorate the 100th anniversary of WW1;

- find out from Friends of the Earth about why planting flowers and fruits creates an important habitat as well as a pleasant environment for us.

"I am very busy gardening now, I have sown scented peas, poppies and daisies; I have nothing more to do than to wait to see what they will give."
Vincent van Gogh, London, April 1874
