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 will be focused on increasing our mint stock, as it is one of the key ingredients in our Barking Grow Club tea blends. We will be planting some new plants, and taking cuttings to propagate. We will look at the wonderful world of mint varieties from apple, to ginger, to pineapple mint.
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
– 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 get in touch, or come to one of our monthly induction dates, the next one is 14th June
The club is led by grower Alice Masson-Taylor and Shaun Tuck.
