Want to get down to earth?

Want to get down to earth? Then get to Emmanuel wildlife garden, off  Chalford Road, West Dulwich on the last Wednesday afternoon (2-4pm) of every month. Norwood Wildlife team created a garden on a patch between Emmanuel, a Parish Church, and their neighbours 12yrs ago and have recently returned it to its original purpose with the help of Church members.  The main garden is an orchard of wild fruit trees, crab apple, cherry, plum (and soon pear) to feed the birds.  Around it is a hawthorn hedge with cow parsley and other hedgerow plants. At the entrance to the area stands a magnificent Rowan tree underplanted with primroses, dog violets and wild grape hyacinths and a long bed nearby is a showpiece for bigger subjects such as teasel, burdock and thistles.

Spring Rising

Our story starts with the frozen, but fertile, earth – made up of many layers built-up over time.  A seed is brought from a distant land, borne by the wind it lands on this frozen ground. Tentatively, new life is nurtured and new growth springs forth… As we reach British Summer Time we celebrate the changing of the seasons, and the growth and change of a community over time. Following on from 2017’s successful Spring Waking, Southwark Council have commissioned a brand-new event for East Dulwich. SPRING RISING will see Emergency Exit Arts and Output Arts return to East Dulwich to create another spectacular community event. Spring Rising will feature a glowing community procession, with costumed dancers, live music and hundreds of people from across the community, ending in a magical illuminated garden with a finale show featuring the work of Sophia Walker. The procession has been designed by EEA and Output arts along with a brilliant team of Associate Artists. We will be working with schools, community groups and local residents to make lanterns …
