A WALKING TOUR OF CHARLIE SEBER’S COMFREY FIELD

Charlie+Seba+with+one+of+his+Comfrey+Plants

JOIN US FOR A VISIT TO CHARLIE SEBER'S COMFREY FIELD IN LEYTON MARSHES

38 years ago Newham resident CHARLIE SEBER adopted an overlooked piece of land in the Lee Valley. Ever since, he has used it to cultivate masses of comfrey. Charlie will give us a guided tour of his field, talk about comfrey' s unique qualities and his many different experiments with the plant.

The walk will set off from the Lee Valley Riding Centre car park, where a workshop will be set up within Wick On Wheels – our mobile project space made from a specially re-purposed milk float. The workshop will feature various experiments from Charlie’s home laboratory, ranging from plant regulated growing systems using recycled bath tubs to a cure for blight using garlic pulp.

WHEN: Sunday 2nd December 2012, from 1 - 3pm
WHERE: Car park outside the Lee Valley Riding Centre, 71 Lea Bridge Rd., London, E10 7QL
RSVP: Places are limited, so please book in advance: mail@household-knowledge.net
