Raised beds assembly - Rutherford House
17/18 was focused on creating a network across Wandsworth and Lambeth to run outdoor learning classes in local schools – culminating in our Outdoor Learning Conference in June. This year we will build on these foundations by organising half-termly gardening workshops for local school garden leaders.
Ongoing projects include:
Continuing our work at Rutherford House School (funded by the Mayor of London;
Developing an outdoor learning programme at Floreat Wandsworth, for which we also hope to obtain external funding;
Delivering gardening workshops in other schools and local communities through new concepts:
“3G Gardening” which will engage 3 generations using old experience and youthful energy to re-connect people of all ages with nature
“Seasonal changes and mathematics” – KS1 science and maths workshops based on seasonal patterns
