Herbs – Words – Wilderness
1-2pm, Weds 10th August | Urban Physic Garden, 100 Union Street, SE1 | free
Herbs – Words – Wilderness will be a prose and poetry sandwich of urban nature writing (with a folk music dressing), celebrating the glory of growing things, wild London and herbal medicine.
Author Helen Babbs will read from her just published first book, My Garden, the City and Me: Rooftop Adventures in the Wilds of London. Poets James Wilkes, Chris McCabe, Isobel Dixon, Sarah Kelly, Matt Martin and Chrissy Williams will read from the newly published poetry anthology, Herbarium. Plus live acoustic music from the marvellous Monooka before and after.
Books and zines will be on sale in the garden (cash only). See you there!
