Grow Club: Planting

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 week we will continue work on our accessible raised beds, which will include repositioning some of our first plants that we put in last year. This is to give them the chance to thrive so that we can get the best harvest from them to make our teas. As it is the second Friday of the April we will also be having our monthly shared lunch. This will be from 12-1pm and you are welcome to bring something big or small to share.

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

– root digging and bulb planting
– 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 on the second Friday of each month

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