Come We Grow

This month, Come We Grow is heading online! Join us on Saturday  4th April at 6pm. We have a full squad; Calina Zadravetzi, Poet’s Tarot Corner, Optiks Hamilton, Dónal Mango and others, keeping us entertained. 

FreeDom Now Track

The very first song from our Hip Hop Garden programme with ChooseLove is out now. It tells the moving story of 6 young boys who travelled to the UK alone in search of a better life, leading behind families in Eritrea, Ethiopia & Vietnam. All of the proceeds form the track goes to the boys, to support the live they are building. Help make their future brighter by purchasing the track, for just £5!

Thank You

On 30th January 2020 I joined Debbie Golt on the Outer Globe radio show on Resonance FM. Catch up through the link below. 

Tree Planting

It was a privillage to take part in the Big Climate Fightback with the woodland trust. They are inspiring young people to take part in reforestation and giving back to the planet. Watch this video to find out more about the great work that they are doing.

Workshops

From 10th -14th March I’ll be on a Hip Hop Garden tour in libraries across London. I’m hosting a fun, practical and FREE workshop for children to learn about planting and growing food, healthy eating and nature. We’ll be creating vegetable beds, writing songs and learning how to cook. It’s a great opportunity for children to be educated, empowered and inspired to be healthy and develop their communities.

Article

Read this beautiful piece by Ruby Tandoh  about Esiah Levy’s life, and food growing in London by POC. Esiah was a young, black grower from Croydon, who shared his seeds and kindness, with strangers across the world, for free, until he tragically died. If you want to support Esiah’s legacy or his family’s wishes, you can donate to any of the projects mentioned at the end of the article.

DJ Night

I’m excited to be back on the decks again. On Saturday 15th February, I’ll be playing at Tribe of Baloo with some amazing DJs. Join us for some a magical night of music, vegan pizza and cocktails!

XR Lambeth Uprising

Last month I had the privilege of performing at the Extinction RebellionLambeth Uprising. There has been a wave of increased awareness and concern about climate breakdown. So much of the music I make is about adding to that conversation. Check out the full performance videos.

This August, I brought a few wonderful volunteers along to Sunday Morning Live at the BBC studios in London. We got to chat about May Project Gardens, hip-hop, gardening and pressing some homegrown apples. It was a great experience.
