Growing Communities, a Hackney-based social enterprise has won the Veg and Fruit Category at the Soil Association Organic Food awards. Food is grown in a 'patchwork farm' - a series of microsites around London, of which The Castle is one of the first.

The Castle are hosting a climbing wall safety seminar aimed at student climbing club leaders who are going to be supervising and teaching new climbers in the centre, once the new academic year begins. Although the seminar is aimed at students, anyone with an interest in supervising novice climbers is welcome to attend. The first session will be run by The Castle's Managing Director, Audrey Seguy.

What is it? A two hour workshop for student club leaders who are going to be teaching/supervising new climbers.

The world’s best paraclimbers are set to compete at the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) Paraclimbing Cup in London this weekend (21-22 September).  The competition is being organised by the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) and will be held at the Westway Climbing Centre.

Meet our new staff member!

The Castle is proud to support YES Outdoors, a charity that engages with at risk youth through adventure based mentoring (including climbing). The climbing team is led by Castle climber Sergeant Tony Quinn and he is leading the charge to recruit new volunteers to work with young people on a one-to-one basis. All volunteers will receive formal training.

The Castle Cafe is taking part in Urban Food Fortnight (14-29 September), an Ethical Eats and Capital Growth initiative to showcase local produce grown, produced and cooked right here in London.

We will be launching our own-brand herbal tea blends and featuring garden only dishes cooked by our chef Carolyn in The Castle Kitchen.

On the 21st and 22nd of September, visitors will have unprecedented access to The Castle and its gardens with guided tours. This year, London's biggest architecture festival, Open House London, coincides with the New River's 400th anniversary and Capital Growth's Edible Gardens Open Day.

After two successful years at the Climbing Hangar (Liverpool), the Women's Climbing Symposium is coming to London. Coaching, lectures and stories led by not just the who’s who of Britain’s elite women climbers, but people you don’t know whose stories you need to know.  As always, WCS 2013 promises to be an essential diary date.

This is a unique event bringing together coaching expertise from Britain's top female climbers with relevant talks about our climbing experiences.

Do you want to show your friends where you spend all your free time? Or maybe you're new to climbing and want to check out The Castle before your first visit? Maybe you're simply curious about that great big Castle in North London...

Well now you can visit The Castle inside and out using Google Streetview.

Don't forget to come back to see the latest developments. The Loft (Engine House- Floor 3) will be opening mid-September.

 

Want to relive the best moments of the Garden Party? Maybe you couldn't make it and want to see what the fuss is about... Ben Grubb's latest video captures the great vibe of the day. We also have a photo gallery of the event.
