Willow weaving

Last Sunday after a fun afternoon at the Birchfields Forest Garden workday (the next one will be the 25th of July, from 1pm), some of us went and had a go at some simple willow weaving in Platt Fields. We were  invited to do this with regard to some of the preperation for Envirolution festival, which will be held there on Saturday 21st of July 1-7pm.

You can see a photo of the lovely path between raised beds, which we have been asked to weave a willow archway at one end of.

We will be down at the Bethnall Drive Alottment activity day this Sunday 1-4pm, after the Olympic torch event in the morning that is! There are ambitious plans to build an earth oven there over the weekend.
