Sessions are free and no experience is needed.

Activities will be suitable for all abilities and will range from sowing and transplanting plants, general garden maintenance, creating wildlife areas and garden features like woven fences.

We provide tools and refreshments and free shared lunch at 1pm. Lunch will be prepared during the outside cooking session from 11:30 – 2pm, which will run alongside the gardening.

Wildlife Gym is organised and run by Assembly SE8 on the site of the Old Tidemill School Wildlife Garden.
