We offer a programme of interactive workshops for young people at our Dagenham Farm and at two of our growing sites in Hackney – in Clissold Park and Springfield Park.
Bring your school class, Brownies, Beavers, Scouts or other youth group to see how we grow organic salad leaves, flowers, herbs and other fruits and vegetables in the city and learn about where their food comes from.
Being in the garden presents lots of opportunities for children to experience and enjoy outdoor learning. All our educators are trained market gardeners with teaching experience, who will ensure the children have fun while learning.
“We really enjoyed observing all the different plants and the team were excellent at answering the children’s questions.” Scout leader
We welcome groups from nursery and early years to key stage 4 and college age. Talk to us about how we can tailor your session to fit your group’s needs or curriculum and complement your classroom learning. Activities might include:
Topics can cover:
