Plant a Poem: Workshop for Teens

“Overhear” is partnering with Highbury Community Orchard to present a workshop of growing, grafting and foraging poems, guided over Zoom by local poets Adrian B Earle and Kibriya Mehrban.

Open to ages 13-16, this video workshop will be held on Saturday 19th December at 10.30am to 12.30pm. The workshop will encourage participants to explore green spaces in a new and social-distancing-compliant way, with the end result of recording and digitally pinning their work to locations in and around the Orchard for family and friends to collect.

Exercises will not be dependent on having visited the orchard in the past but will encourage future exploration. Participants will have a week post-workshop to edit and record their poems before emailing them to us to be pinned using the Overhear app, available on the App Store and Google Play Store.

Participants and parents/guardians will be emailed a Zoom link in advance, after booking a place for the workshop here.
