Gardening Club

Gardening and growing food collectively is a good way to make new friends and you always share something to eat!

chardAt St Saviours Infants school the parents and children of the new Gardening Club have been exploring the basics of growing your own with mentors from the community garden.

The new gardeners have been using raised beds at the school to cultivatate, reap and sow in tandem with starter projects at home and enjoyed visiting other growing places like the allotments and our own garden here at Alice Park.

We look forward to catching up with the group agin in September to see learn about their summer harvests and check on the giant pumpkin.

Green Woodworking workshop 25 October 2014

Many thanks to Tim Gatfield, Charlie and Red from The Cherry Wood Project www.cherrywoodproject.co.uk for such an enjoyable morning at Alice Park Community Garden. Tim shared the principles of green woodworking and taught participants how to craft spatulas from alder. The group used shave horses, draw knives, craft knives and axes to practice their new skills and get a taste for the potential of working with wood.
