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 Friday we will begin establishing the beds in which we will be growing herbs for our tea blends. We will make use of both young plants and seeds, and possibly take some cuttings to increase our stock so please join us to practice these different propagation techniques.

We are now running a weekly Growing Club every Friday from 10am-12pm.
Our main activities at the moment are:
– expanding our growing area with new raised beds
– preparing our fruit growing areas
- planting new herbs and sowing seeds
– 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 our next induction on April 12th

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