Open Garden Squares Weekend 9-10 June 2012

Open Saturday 12:00–17:00 + Sunday 12:00–17:00

This is a wildlife garden behind Stockwell Studios, home to artists’ studios and a community arts education centre. The artists have been custodians for over two decades of the building which was once the Annie McCall maternity hospital.

To date we have beehives, a pond, treehouse, orchard, bog land, a fern and mushroom area, natural wood structures to encourage stag beetles and insects, and a kitchen garden in the walled garden. There is plenty of seating to enjoy the space and relax.

The garden is generally open every Tuesday afternoon to the public and the response from local residents has been consistently appreciative of this wonderful wildlife garden. We also host a number of garden events throughout the year.

Gardener: Neel Bakhle; Community Artist: Julie Norburn

Activities: 25th Anniversary Open Studios Exhibition. The artists of Stockwell Studios will be celebrating 25 years as custodians of the former Annie McCall Hospital and invite you to their free Open Studios Weekend, where you can view and buy contemporary art from current Studio members and guest artists.
