I am currently running a series of workshops at Mercato Metropolitano in Elephant and Castle.
The management have kindly offered me space to run a series of workshops designed as a Permaculture design and a social experiment to turn waste into fertility. The aim is to develop a sense of community and set up an urban food growing space. The materials used to perform
the workshops will be re-imagined waste produced by the 50 stalls at the Mercato. We will be using plastic crates, palettes, vegetable peelings and cardboard to make compost. We will run a series of closed loop urban Permaculture workshops where we will explore working with nature inner city and developing efficient self running vertical food growing systems which the community at large can benefit from.
The first workshop of the series takes places on Sunday November 6th 2016 at Mercato Metropolitano and is a one off special Kokedama workshop.
Kokedama is the Japanese art of wrapping plants in moss balls and displaying them in the air to form air gardens or simply as a sphere to enjoy as a replacement for a pot. This transforms the plant into living art and it contributes to an overall healthier and a more beautiful environment.
