Go Green Eco Urban Festival - June 2024

May 29th, 2024

The Wolves Lane Centre, N22 5JD

5 June 2024, 5.00pm to 7.00pm

The Wolves Lane Centre is a unique and welcoming hub for urban food production, housed in a blend of new, cutting-edge, sustainable buildings designed by Studio Gil and Material Cultures, alongside historic glasshouse structures from the 1970s.

Established in May 2019, OrganicLea and the Ubele Initiative joined forces with a shared vision to transform the Wolves Lane Centre into a focal point for urban food cultivation, emphasising inclusivity for Black and racially minoritised growers. Wolves Lane hosts Black Rootz, the UK's first multigenerational Black-led growing initiative, fostering knowledge exchange between seasoned growers and younger generations, nurturing a connection to our natural surroundings.

Come along to this event and explore the innovative designs and construction techniques, including straw bale construction, lime render, sustainable drainage, and rainwater harvesting. This will be a unique opportunity to meet the architect design team and participate in tours of the Wolves Lane Centre new eco-building project.

Please arrive promptly at 5pm for a hard hat tour commencing at 5.15pm. The tour will include a briefing followed by a journey through the glasshouses and new buildings, concluding with further discussions in the café. Please wear suitable footwear and weather-appropriate clothing.
