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 finish constructing our second leaf bin, and then rake the growing area to collect the fallen leaves. These will be left for 1-2 years to breakdown and become what's known as Leaf Mould. We can use this in seed sowing mix, or as mulch on our herb beds. All part of creating a circular system.
**Please arrive from 9:30am for a cup of tea ready for a 10am start.**
We are now running a weekly Growing Club every Friday from 9:30am-12noon.
Our main activities at the moment are:
– Preparing the garden for Winter
– Top dressing beds
– Mulching shrubs
– Care of the meadow area
– Spending time connecting with our senses
– Making the most of the light and shorter days
We hold 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 inductions on the second Friday of the month. Watch this space for confirmed date for the first one of 2020.
The club is led by growers Alice Masson-Taylor and Shaun Tuck.
