2012 Dalston Flower Show: Growing Minds – Dalston’s school gardens

Saturday 26 May, 10.30am-12.30pm

School gardens are a great resource for children to learn about science, geography, the environment and a wide range of life skills.

For teachers and parents they can raise challenges of over-stretched budgets and shoe-horning gardening activities into tight teaching schedules.

Join local parent and gardener Ali Moore, to see how adults and children are rising to these challenges to create beautiful green spaces in Dalston’s schools. The walk will highlight the front garden of the lovely Victorian Colvestone Primary School, take in Petchey Academy’s ‘Food Garden’ with its special biodome greenhouse, look in on Shacklewell Primary School and finish with a visit to Brook Community Primary School where local gardener Myra Heller will talk about helping children create this wildlife friendly garden and their ‘outdoor classroom’.

Venue: Multiple, but starting at Dalston Eastern Curve Garden

Booking: Free, but places are limited so please register at: info@dalstongarden.org
