It’s the weekend and you deserve MOSS. (Thanks to volunteers last month we now offer you ours in some detail at www.lawsonpark.org )
Looking south to our HQ Lawson Park, towards the Union Orchard (Est. 2010). Who knows if the UK will be a union much longer? It seemed fragile when we planted it and even more so now.... These 2 self-sown oak trees flank the entrance to an exciting new garden we are planning: The #brexit #orchard - fruit varieties originating from all the remaining EU countries will be planted over the next few years, helped by grafts by South Lakes Orchard Group 🙏

Recent @coniston_institute office rehang: Romantic Detachment #drumkit & billboard by Roddy Thomson and Colin Lowe.
🙏 to 2020’s first volunteers 🙏 Not an easy season to join us what with the wind, the rain and the short days but these folks were legends! 👏🏻Lindsay, Hannah, Alistair & Tom (who’d lived at Lawson Park as a tiny baby!) 👏🏻
David Attenborough’s stuff - English slipware, Leach and Cardew - alongside precolombian, African and other world folk artefacts - what is the thing in the foreground - anyone ?
Spend the day in Lawson Park Library on Saturday Feb 8 - the first of nine Visiting Days in 2020 - full of wonderful art ephemera, natural history books, films and the odd artist’s multiple. Colour coding by volunteer @_emma_quinn still in place, with recent TLC by Kati Karki & Clara Vankerschaver 🙏.
