Summer term 2022!
This Summer gardening club will run for 10 weeks (with a break during half term). During the gardening sessions, children will learn how to grow fruit and vegetables, and other plants, from seeds (or bulbs). On top of the general gardening skills (watering, weeding, sowing seeds, planting, the children involved in some other outdoor & sensory activities too, which include exploration in the garden, some forest school activities (with bug identification, making a bug hotel, making an origami seed packet, a leaf crown etc....). Children will also be tasting herbs from the gardens and when ripe or grown enough harvest the fruit of their labour!
Please note that all sessions are fully run outdoors. Children should come appropriately dressed for each session and according to the weather forecast. In the event of rain, children should ideally wear appropriate waterproof clothing and boots. Proper cover with a tarpaulin and gazebo will be set up to offer proper shelter as necessary.

My two boys have spoken endlessly about how much they have enjoyed their gardening activities with Pascale (a modern day green fingered Mary Poppins) and this year my little 3 year old daughter joined them too. They come home with so much knowledge and facts about nature. It has instilled in them a love of the natural world and an eagerness to take care of it. The only complaint they had was that it was not long enough, which goes to show how interested they are. They cannot wait for future workshops as all three of them have had such a wonderful time.
Volunteering at Growing Space has been such a wonderful and inspiring experience. I thoroughly enjoy tending to the plants and helping out during holiday activities. The community is so welcoming and I have learnt so much about gardening from them. From tending to plants to fixing wiring, there is something here for everyone. I especially liked the Halloween workshop, where we carved pumpkins with fun designs. Every week I look forward to coming to the garden and enjoy watching the garden transform week-by-week.
The Growing Space is a beautiful and safe place within central London where children can experience and learn about how fruit and vegetables are grown. Our children are always excited to visit and we found the courses to be very informative and fun, The teachers are very well prepared and are very good at transferring that information to the children. We’ve been recommending it to our friends and look forward to attend more courses in the future. We feel that the Growing Space has become an integral part of the local community and very much look forward to its future development.
