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 be re familiarising ourselves with our shovels as we continue the work we started in Winter by clearing the wood chip mulch away from the wildflower meadow area. This work will continue for another few sessions and will culminate in sowing the wildflower seeds!

We are now running a weekly Growing Club every Friday from 10am-12pm.
Our main activities at the moment are:
– tending raised beds with edible herbs
– preparing our fruit growing areas
– continuing work on our wildflower meadow

– root digging and bulb planting
– spending time connecting with our senses

We’re having 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 come to one of our monthly induction dates on the second Friday of each month

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