Gardening

Our regular park gardening sessions are a great way to get outdoors, meet some neighbours and help care for the park.

Join us (usually twice a month) on Saturdays as we focus on projects to improve areas of the park like the Labyrinth Garden or the Wildlife Garden. Regular tasks include weeding, watering, pruning, and planting. Look at our What’s On page for upcoming session dates.

You may also be interested in our Edible Gardening sessions on Saturdays where we learn how to grow food in the Community Garden or want to join our Litter Picking group who meet every Wednesday, 10am the Willow Garden to keep our park tidy.

No experience is needed for any activities. For more information please email volunteering@friendsofruskinpark.org.uk.
