Company Drinks together with Made Up Kitchen

7-11 only

Explore the Wild is a children-focused health and wellbeing programme. Across four weeks, Company Drinks will transform the old bowls club and bowls green in Barking Park into a well-being space for wild play, growing, cooking, feasting, resting, creating, and eating nutritious food.

Company Drinks is again partnering with Made Up Kitchen to deliver nutritional food and cooking workshops through holistic approaches. Opening the door to learn about food production, picking, recipes and much more and providing young people with the tools to create their own meals. Made Up Kitchen will prepare food daily and involve the children in the whole process from chopping, serving, feasting, recording ideas and sharing.

Explore the Wild will run Monday – Thursday each week, 10:30am-2pm and lunch is provided.

WEEK 1 | 24th July – 27th July | 10:30am-2pm

WEEK 2 | 31st July – 3rd August | 10:30am-2pm
