Come together and help us grow a community garden in the heart of Toxteth.

For Liverpool Biennial 2018, artist Mohamed Bourouissa is working with Kingsley Community School, Granby Four Streets CLT and the local community to create a new garden and a space for resilience. Join our gardener Andrea Ku on Saturday afternoons to learn about gardening, planting and growing. The sessions are open to everybody including families, first time gardeners and green fingered enthusiasts.

The project is inspired by a garden the artist encountered in Blida, Algeria, made by a patient of the psychoanalyst and writer Frantz Fanon. Fanon’s patient underwent occupational therapy through gardening, reflecting the organisation of his mental space in the structure of his garden. Bourouissa will create a similar garden in collaboration with Kingsley Community School, working with the local community, gardeners, school pupils, teachers and artists.

The site is next to the Adult Learning Centre and on the grounds of the school.
