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:
Our September Garden event is Urban Harvest Feast Day
A time to celebrate all the wonderful food that we've enjoyed from the garden throughout the year, and all the efforts of people and creatures that have helped it to flourish.

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!
