London Rivers Week 2024: Channelsea Conservation

June 23 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join our friends Surge Co-operative for a day of conservation work on the Channelsea River and at garden called ‘Long Wall Ecology’.

You will start the day with a deep listening session, grounding into the space, tuning in to the sounds of the riverscape, and awakening our senses to some of the species that make their home there.

You’ll be using our floating pontoon to get out onto the water to gather any early blooms of pennywort before they start to grow, a vigorous species that populates the water’s surface blocking out light and oxygen for other species.

You’ll be pulling it out of the water and into the compost bins on land, ready to break down and become food for the apple trees.

There’ll be jobs on land too, cutting back bramble and buddleia and other strong growing plants to maintain a healthy balance of species.

You’ll also be joined by fellow coop Compost Mentis who’ll be leading a zine making workshop for our compost toilet, to celebrate some of the beautiful ideas that have gone into the community co-design, and encourage future dreaming of perfect toilets.

Date and time: Sunday 23rd June. 14.00p,-17.00pm

Location: located off the Greenway by Abbey Mills on the Long Wall Path London E15 2RW
