The L-Shaped Garden

We’re making a garden for Bootle Library.  Would you like to get involved?

We have commissioned artist Harun Morrison to work with us to imagine, design and create a new garden to the south of the Library, making a new space for growing, relaxing, reading and meeting. We need your help to make it happen, from design through to digging.  If you have time or skills to offer, please join us at one of our regular garden planning events.

Harun Morrison lives on a narrow boat which is slowly making its way around the UK’s canal network.  His work includes performances, designs, DIY actions and other creative processes, often taking the form of a game or sparked by chance encounters, creating temporary micro-communities that find new ways of approaching situations, histories or ideas.

Luiza Prado is an artist based in Berlin whose practice focuses on the collective magic of sharing a meal.  We’re delighted that she will join us to design our meals through the development of the project.

Regular gardening and Beekeeping is supported by artist Andrea Ku of B for Biodiversity.  Beekeeping courses will start in April.
