Folk Art and Gardening day at the Red and Black Umbrella- The Revolution is Growing!
This Sunday we will happily be opening our doors to the community as we host an autonomous folk arts, bbq, music and fun day on sunday. Bring paint ya’ll!
From 11am onwards we will be sharing music, vegan food, seeds and art.
We ask and encourage those who use the space to bring vegan food, seeds to swap, paints to decorate our newly white-washed social centre walls and gardening supplies that we can use for the edible garden that we hope to start cultivating this year.
We have a nice clear space ready for Sunday, thanks to those who attended our productive (work) day yesterday. It’s time for the space to get a new face on!
Ideas for the outside of the building greatly appreciated.
We welcome families and dogs
57 – 5 8 clifton street, cardiff.
