Clear Village Charitable Trust, the organisation that manages the Walled Garden, has been commissioned by Havering Council to run a programme for children during the summer holidays 2014. The programme will start on July 29th and will run for five weeks until August 29th, with the Grow Cook Eat festival as a closing event on September 6th.
Children are invited to take part in a playful, inventive and unique experience of discovery about food – how to grow it, how to cook some of it but more importantly they’ll learn about how food affects their bodies and gain knowledge that should last a lifetime.
It takes place in the garden with food growing all around them. So they’ll see vegetables in a different light. They may not even recognise familiar vegetables growing in the ground and new vegetables will be an exciting all round encounter.
