Autumn 2014 half term we spent the week working with young people from 2inspire youth club and Aylesbury Estate, helping to create a graffiti mural for there Community Garden which holds plots for local residents to grow a variety of food and flaura from squashes to sunflowers and is a place for all to learn about cultivation.
We have just finished a huge mural on the side of the the St Mungo’s Trust building which faces into the Palace Road Nature Garden in Streatham Hill. The wall depicts the seven continents of the world as stain glass windows to reflect the multicultural community. It was a great inter-generational project working with 3 to 70 year old’s from the local area. The mural has mad a huge difference to the enjoyment and profile of the lovely nature garden. It was funded by Lambeth Council and supported and organised by the friends group, headed by Gerry Mc Ateer.
For the opening local celebrity Levi Roots came down and unveiled the windows one by one. It was a great day and celebration of a wonderful project.
