Gardening workshops for young people

The charity Urban Growth is running six-week free “introduction to gardening” workshops starting 13 September.

They run from noon to 3pm at Slade Gardens Edible Playground, at the corner of Stockwell Park Road and Lorn Road SW9 0AD

If you are 18-26 and live in Lambeth you can join the six sessions that will each cover a different topic – bulbs, composting, weeding. Each session starts with a free lunch.

There will also be information on careers in the industry and the chance for paid work with Urban Growth after the sessions have ended.
