Fun and informal after-school, forest school-type sessions run in the Castle garden for 7-13 year olds.
Kids will be invited to get involved with lots of fun activites to get them excited about the outdoors; they will learn about natural habitats and how to look after themselves in the wild, whilst having loads of fun and laughs.
The structure of each session follows a natural rhythm that incorporates:
Families from Tower Hamlets attended a fun day, in spite of a morning of gales and downpours, focussed on health and well-being.
The day combined climbing sessions, with a nature discovery walk along the local New River path to the London Wildlife Trust’s recently opened Woodberry Wetlands, yoga, and garden activities - exploring the Castle Garden, seed sowing, harvesting leaves and herbs, making pizzas with healthy garden grown toppings, firing them in the cob oven and eating together at the end!
Since the garden project began at the Castle climbing Centre 6 and half years ago, I have always been intrigued by how much climbers train for physical fitness and climbing technique; by the way they employ personal trainers and really work hard on repetitive exercises to get fitter and stronger and minimise injuries.
