A sec on post by Sonya Patel Ellis from The Herbarium Project offers a chance to see flowers from the Forest Gate Community Garden going into the press. Flower and plant specimens include rose, buddleia, Russian vine, bramble, ivy, birch leaf and thistle. Looking forward to seeing how they press and starting the official Forest Gate Community Garden Herbarium – a great way to share news on the existing and developing wildlife in our garden.
