Monthly Programme

9th January 2018 (note this is the 2nd Tuesday)
The Garden Classroom 
Rosey Lyall and Phoebe Nevill

Lots of us take nature for granted. It’s part of who we are. We enjoy creating beautiful flower gardens, growing vegetables, walking in parks and forests and getting into the countryside.  However many of our Hackney and Islington children and young people have missed out on these experiences and that’s why The Garden Classroom, born in local King Henry’s Walk Garden and now based on Newington Green,  is going from strength to strength.

Founder trustee Rosey Lyall will tell us how The Garden Classroom came about and share the joys and perils of running a small local charity.  Education and Community Officer Phoebe Nevill will explain why outdoor learning is so important for children, tell us how The Garden Classroom works and reveal some exciting plans for the future.  And if you’ve got children, grandchildren or are a child at heart you’ll definitely pick up some tips for making a visit to the park an educational experience!
