It’s Good to Grow Day at the Maryon Park Community Garden this Saturday (24 April) – a first chance for the public to look inside one of Charlton’s best-kept secrets since the start of the pandemic last year.
Visitors will be able to see the community garden and its forest school with socially-distanced tours for family groups and social bubbles.
The community garden provides organic growing plots for local people, as well as an indoor garden meeting space, while the forest school has space for primary schools and child-minders’ groups as well as outdoor art therapy.
There will be a tomato and plant sale, damson jam and a woodcraft stall at the gates of the park, next to the old park-keeper’s house. Visitors are asked to wear a mask.
“The Good to Grow Day is about encouraging people and families to visit their local community garden. Whether just want to visit the stalls, become involved or see the community Garden for the first time, you will be welcome,” the community garden’s chair, Tim Anderson says.
