Come and join our team for a Monday morning at Long Eaton Community Garden.
Everyone is welcome, although this session is aimed at adult garden users.
This quieter session focuses on maintenance jobs around the garden and will have tasks for a range of abilities.
Ideal for those wanting to get together in a small group to become part of the team.
Tea, biscuits and a chat are always on the agenda!
This session is free but donations towards tea, coffee and biscuits are always greatly appreciated.
Every Thursday 10 am - 12 noon
Thursday sessions unavailable in 2023
This session is aimed at those who want a bit of mid-week outdoor activity. This is a quiet session, focusing on the current list of jobs that are more practical, rather than plant based. We have a range of jobs to do for all abilities and skill levels: maintaining garden furniture, building structures and planters for use in the garden, constructing paths etc.
Experienced garden volunteers are on hand to advise if needed and there is always a chance for a cup of tea and a chat while you work.
The session is free, but we do have a donation box.
Little Foresters provides Forest school sessions for pre school families, families that home school and for families in the school holidays.
Forest school is:
'an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees'
(The Forest School association)
Some examples of activities include den building, climbing trees, working with clay, using tools to make items from wood and cooking our snack on the fire.
We have groups running every other Friday and every other Thursday in term time.
We have just started a monthly Home Education session on Wednesday afternoons.
Our Facebook page Little foresters details our events - like below to keep up to date.
Places must be booked for these sessions due to the nature of the activities we run.
These sessions carry a charge.
