OUR BLOG

A garden is a wonderful playground for children of all ages.

At our Gardening club the children and young people are working on their wormery with Jhon.

If you are interested in joining our Gardening Club please pop in and speak to Lorna.

Did you manage to see this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower show? The popular florists JamJar Flowers created the amazing features on the gates.

The thousand of plants that made up the curtain and surrounding planters were manifested from seed at Slade Gardens APG– with the help from our local children, young people and volunteers. They were able to learn about growing vegetables, flowers and of course bees!

Many thanks to JamJar Flowers for kindly donating various plants, which we hope to sell at the SPRA festival and Family Sports Day on 22nd June.

Our Community Gardens Project

Alongside Urban Growth we have a new community project to redevelop our existing allotment and run volunteer & training sessions.

We will be teaching young people and their families to grow their own food and flowers. Our aim is to create a range of opportunities for the young people within the community to attend open-access, drop-in volunteer sessions on the weekends and more structured, educational sessions during the week, for local schools, community groups & specialist support agencies.

The picture above shows how the site was in autumn 2018. Since then, with the help from corporate volunteers, we have demolished many of the old structures which were unsound, & have built new raised beds, paths, a polytunnel and pond.

We are asking for your help to volunteer and support us in maintaing and developing the new site.

If you, your school or organisation would like to get involved please contact us at Sladeadventure@btinternet.com

This project is currently funded by the Mayor of London’s Greener City Fund and the Trust for London, but we are seeking donors/sponsors to continue the project after the summer of 2019.

So far in the spring of 2019 we have had already hosted more than 700 hours of volunteering from corporate teams & local individuals.
