To help celebrate this and the fact that London is about to become the world’s first National Park City, our friends at the Outdoor People are hosting ‘Park City Celebrations,’ a free festival taking place this Sunday at Netil market in Hackney.
The event is about inspiring, educating and skill sharing in all things outdoor. This includes a tea-making workshop by Hackney Herbal, Whittling workshops by London Green Wood, celebrity forager John the Poacher will be explaining how you can forage for fresh ingredients on the streets of London, and there will be wild walks with Ida Fabrizio. There will also be live music and food from the residents at Netil Market and the event is dog-friendly!
Outdoor People’s mission is to make the outdoors easy for everyone. They are a social enterprise reinvesting profits into getting children outdoors and into nature. As well as running projects and offering consultancy services, they also have a shop in east London selling the best ethical, environmentally friendly and useful outdoor gear.
