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

Throughout the winter we will have a combination of indoor and outdoor tasks so the sessions can take place whatever the weather. If you fancy spending time outside but don't want to get cold, then why not get involved with turning the compost? If you need to look after your knees then seed sowing in a raised bed could be for you. We will also need to top up our leaf mould bin, weed the containers, tend to our greenhouse plants and get ready for spring!

**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:

– Top dressing beds

-Preparing for Spring

– Mulching shrubs

– Care of the meadow area

– Spending time connecting with our senses

– Making the most of the light and shorter days

– Drinking nice hot teas to keep us warm!

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 our next induction session on February 14th. See here for details.

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