“Brilliant Idea for kids to get busy and learn that veg do not grow in supermarkets! Makes mums life more interesting too”
We have been running open community gardening drop in sessions since 2009 in our beautiful, award winning Community Allotment situated in the gallery courtyard. In 2016, following a significant upgrade, the allotment will be open from 6 May.
“What a wonderful idea, just what children need in a city”
Families with pre-school children are welcome to ‘dig in’ every Friday morning from 10am – midday, working together to grow and eat fresh fruit and vegetables in our idyllic secret garden.
We also partner with local and national organisations providing bespoke workshops for the wider community including Age UK, BOSCO Centre for Young People, Riverside Parents Group and the Rotherhithe Family Centre.
“A brilliant project, my daughter has harvested root vegetables and made a smoothie with them at home, learning that food comes from the ground rather than the supermarket”.
