With many thanks to the Local Food Fund for funding the Growing Gardens Project. This will enable us to continue working with the many volunteers that donate their time to the garden each week - continue to provide many exciting food growing and environmental Workshops throughout the year - Our Green Fingers Tours, showing local school children where their food comes from - To create our new allotment space - Our Harvest festival will be a chance to bring the local community and volunteers together to celebrate and to share their experiences through the year. And a great deal more!
This day will help beginners gain a general understanding about bees and what it involves to look after them, so if you are thinking ofkeeping bees or are just interested in them,
it is a great chance to gain more knowledge! Find out the importance of bees, the life cycles of bees and the hive, pollination and honey, diseases, general hive management and much more!. As part of the day we will also be taking a trip to visit the Wimbledon BeekeepersAssociations apiary at Morden Hall Park. Please bring your own wellies and packed lunch.

Flo about Flo
"well...I grew up within a family who have always been passionate about gardening, this lead me on to to pursue my career in garden design. I studied at University college Falmouth, Cornwall, which was a particularly inspiring place to learn. I went on to work at The Lost Gardens of Helegan and then in Scotland for the couple of years - my knees started to ache from the damp weather their so I decided to come back down south. Since being in London I am now working as Community gardener at Deen City Farm. I smiled when I first saw the garden, a lovely surprise hidden away. I am really excited about our Harvest Festival which is coming up soon and the new allotment area. "
