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 look at plants that send out runners and the way to propagate from them. We will use a spider plant for this demonstration as our strawberries are in their first year and not quite up and running! With our new skills we will be able to increase our strawberry plant numbers for next year.

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 12th July

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