How our Spaces are Growing
Installation of the garden will commence 1st April and the grand opening with special guests Helen Browning OBE & Michael Gove, will take place at 4:00pm on 23 May.
Growing Space at Christ Church is a partnership between Thomas’s School Kensington, Victoria Road Montessori and St. Mary Abbot’s Church of England School in South Kensington.These schools will benefit from a fully sustainable & organic garden, designed and installed by Edible Playgrounds.This same organisation will provide one year’s support in the form of teacher and staff workshops and seminars in order to effectively incorporate the garden into both KS1 and KS2 curriculum.
The goal is that small groups of school children access the garden on a weekly basis throughout the growing season. The Growing Space environmental coordinator will schedule use of the garden among the three participating schools and support staff as required as well as organise and implement school holiday workshops for the broader community.
