New growing patch and forest school for Plumstead children’s centre needs volunteers and gardening donations

Green-fingered enthusiasts and gardening donations are needed to help get a Forest School and Growing Patch development off the ground in South East London.

The Plumstead Day Nursery and Children Centre has an outdoor plot ready to develop into a safe playing space, including an area of raised beds to grow vegetables, and is calling for volunteers, as well as building and gardening materials to get the job done.

The Centre, run by charity Home-Start Greenwich, supports families that often live in inadequate housing with little or no outdoor spaces in an area of London, which has minimal access to outdoor public facilities and a large number of poorly-maintained spaces.

All that is required from volunteers is goodwill and a pair of gardening gloves.

Donations needed include mud kitchens, planters, containers, utensils, compost, garden tools, plants, and seeds in addition to funds required for structural changes to provide a water source for maintenance and play.
