As part of Communal Knowledge at Work and in the lead up to his major commission opening in the autumn, Uriel Orlow has been working in The Showroom’s neighbourhood researching local medicinial plant use, which has informed the development of a multi-cultural medicinal plant garden at 60 Penfold Community Hub. The garden is being constructed in collaboration with gardener Carole Wright, Church Street Bengali Women’s Group, Penfold Hub Gardening Group, and Penfold Hub residents and centre-users.

Join us for the medicinal garden launch and tour with the artist and Michael Heinrich professor of Pharmacognosy (the study of medicinal drugs derived from plants) at UCL.

Supported by a Wellcome Trust Arts Award.
