A friend’s papermaking group are looking for some garden space in or around Lambeth to grow food crops that double as material for making paper. See the text of their Landshare advert below. Get in touch if you have, or know of, space to share!
We are a small group of papermakers and paper artists specialising in work with locally-sourced plant materials, and are currently looking for a garden space in Lambeth or surrounding boroughs where we can grow food plants with a dual purpose of providing materials for making handmade papers.
We ideally seek a medium to large sized garden that is not currently in use, with space for a large shed or outhouse (with option to build if necessary) where materials can be dried and stored, and where members of the group can meet to work together (optional). Free access via a garden gate also preferable.
In return, we offer help with maintenance of the space, a generous share of any crops, and the expertise and input of members with experience of gardening and access to a broad network of gardening contacts in South London.
Members can also offer free papermaking workshops to community organisations.
Many thanks for your interest.
