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 introduce the concept of a forest garden and see the ways in which our garden is taking shape in line with these principles. We will be preparing our curved beds which will be filled with wildlife friendly plants with a variety of interesting textures, shapes and colours.

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 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.
