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 be dedicating our time to the red and white currant area. We will be positioning our planters and filling them with soil, and planting our young shrubs. We will also spend time talking about soil, the heart of the garden!

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.
