Delivered in partnership with Vocational Support Services

Every week in Barking Park, we're growing all new ingredients, learning gardening skills and helping to improve the biodiversity of Barking Park.

This week we will work with the leaf pile that we made last year, and sieve it and mix it to prepare to use it on our beds as a winter mulch. This helps keep moisture in and maintain the soil temperature.

**Please arrive from 9:30am for a cup of tea ready for a 10am start.**

We are now running a weekly Growing Club every Friday from 9:30am-12noon.
Our main activities at the moment are:
– harvesting our herbs
– weeding and deadheading

– preparing for Autumn

– spending time connecting with our senses

We hold special seasonal events and celebrations, and once a month we sit together for a shared lunch after the growing session.

If you are interested in joining please get in touch, or come to one of our monthly induction dates, the next one is 11 October

The club is led by grower Alice Masson-Taylor and Shaun Tuck.
