Apprenticeship at the Castle 2014  - by Lucy Nacson-Jones

The Castle garden is one of those sought after places in the Big Smoke that give you a moment’s peace from the hustle and bustle of the city, and I have been lucky enough to be doing the apprenticeship there since May.

Arts, crafts and environmental education, for children and families:

Children’s Yoga and Nature Crafts, 24.07.14
2 sessions led by Lauren on a very sunny day in July. The children enjoyed being part of a special Castle Garden yoga adventure; encountering foxes, dogs, herons and frogs along the way, and creating beautiful art from clay. 

It's been an abundant and busy summer here in the Castle Garden! Thanks to the warmer weather, and our increasing veg growing space, (more veg beds and our new glasshouse made from reclaimed materials, thank you to Caste’s head builder Gerry and his team!)

Urban Food Routes

An initiative to support a variety of London’s small food enterprises to gain expert advice and funding to enable them to thrive and benefit their local communities.

On Wednesday 9th July 2014, Managing Director, Audrey Seguy and Centre Manager, Ben Levey put on their posh frocks ready for an invitation with HRH The Earl of Wessex at St James's Palace.

The Castle Climbing Centre has landed the Green Thinking Award at the Sport and Recreation Alliance’s Community Sport and Recreation Awards. Sponsored by Utility Aid, the prestigious award, was presented by the Alliance’s President, HRH The Earl of Wessex at a ceremony in St James's Palace.

This year’s Events Series started with a free Easter garden day;

The Castle Cafe, for the second year running, has won the Sustainable Food Award at the 2013-2014 Sustainable City Awards, announced on the 27th of March.  This is a great achievement, considering that we've come out above dedicated restaurants and cafes!  Our congratulations go to the Cafe, Kitchen and Garden teams for making this happen.

This season the Castle Garden are looking for two volunteer apprentices for our garden;
A herb apprentice (Mondays) and a Kitchen garden apprentice (Thursdays) to work with the Castle garden team and learn to manage a productive and fun food growing project that grows vegetables, fruit and herbs for a commercial kitchen and café.

Welcome to 2014! To bring in the new year, we're building a live willow dome in the garden on Saturday the 18th of January from 11am to 4pm. Come along to watch, learn and help out. Please email garden@castle-climbing.co.uk for more information or if you are intending to participate as there are limited spaces.

We're also back to the usual volunteer days: Mondays and Thursday between 11am and 4pm if you want to get some fresh air and help out.
