GL resident and artist Liz Davis has collected and pressed over 200 plant specimens of wild plants from the Square Mile since 2010 for the Natural History Museum archive. Wild City exhibition is a chance to see some of these beautiful specimens, many from green spaces that no longer exist, such as Bernard Morgan House Garden and many from around Golden Lane Estate.
Town House Gallery is also worth a visit, located in an old silk weavers house in Spitalfields at 5 Fournier Street E1 6QE. There is a cafe with scumptious home-made cakes and a tranquil courtyard garden in which to eat them!
The Exhibition is FREE and runs until 17 June.
Tuesday to Friday 11am – 6pm.
Saturday to Monday 11am – 5pm
There is a map of all the specimens here: https://www.friendsofcitygardens.org.uk ... owers.html
