Community Initiatives at Tate Modern, in partnership with

develop the community garden space for use by the local

Substantial groundwork has already taken place and a

Wildlife Trust as well as a shed designed by the Riverwood
project, working in partnership with Mencap. But we need
your help to make the garden even more colourful! A range of
wild flowers will be planted as well as climbers.
YouÕll need to come dressed in clothing suitable for the
outdoors, so donÕt forget your wellies! Please come along,
everyone is welcome. The gated garden space is located on
the Tate Modern landscape, to the east of the building.
If you would like to come along please contact Synthia
