Errol is a young boy living in the inner city who longs for his own garden. After running out of room for plants in his flat, he dreams of having a garden of his own. He discovers that his flat has a rooftop that would be perfect for a garden.

But the rooftop is full of rubbish and transforming the space into a garden will be a big task, so he invites his neighbours to join him. After a great community effort, the rubbish has been cleared. Soon there are flowers, fruits and vegetables for everyone to share.

Errol’s Garden encourages children to joyfully use their ideas to make a positive impact on their local community.

This event will take place outdoors in the Albany Garden, please check the weather and dress accordingly! There is no guaranteed shade or rain cover. Seating will be on mats on the grass, with chairs available on request for anybody with an access requirement.
