Delivered in partnership with Voluntary 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 be casting our minds forward to spring... and planting lots of bulbs like daffodils, crocuses, and snow drops. Our intention is that these will look beautiful and support all the much loved pollinators in the park. We'll get together for a cosy communal lunch afterwards to see in the colder season...

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
– harvesting and processing herbs
– preparing a compost system
– root digging
– preparing wild flower areas

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 the induction sessions on
Friday 9th November from 1-2.30pm
Friday 14th December from 1-2.30pm.

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