The Wick Common Shop: BBQ in the Mobile Garden City

Come along on Wednesday 19 August from 4.30pm to 7.30pm to visit the Wick Common Shop's archive with a FREE BBQ at the The Mobile Garden City. The Shed invigilator and artist Sara Karpanen will be giving ‘shed tours’ and hosting a participatory art work for public.

Join for the BBQ, face painting, and a smoothie bike for you to make own fresh fruit smoothies. There will also be a community gardener there to answer any of your gardening questions. Please feel free to bring along your own picnics and refreshments.

For a six-month period the Wick Common Shop hosted events, workshops and exhibitions around the idea of the ‘Common Object’ at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The Shop’s current residency is in the Mobile Garden City.

Mobile Garden City was developed from an original concept and design ideas by Public Works and Somewhere. Groundwork London is managing the garden on behalf of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
