In partnership with National Park City, Timberland and Croydon Council, Urban Growth, a social enterprise who creates green spaces and green communities, has transformed Thornton Heath’s Ambassador House into a community garden for all to enjoy.
Thanks to funding from Croydon Council and Timberland we have launched a monthly gardening club where we can come together to care for the space and make sure the community garden thrives as a lush urban oasis.
We will meet on the first Saturday of every month 1.00 – 4.00pm to maintain and care for the plants and planters, while also learning essential horticultural skills that you can use as work experience or apply to your own garden!
Your safety is our top priority so due to the virus we are limiting volunteer numbers. Booking via eventbrite for each session is essential, so please do book your free place for each monthly session. If the sessions are fully booked or you experience any difficulty booking your place, please get in touch: ThorntonHeathRegen@croydon.gov.uk.
Rest assured we will be adhering to strict social distancing at all times and full guidelines will be sent to you upon confirmation of your place. We strongly recommend all clubbers bring their own gardening gloves (washing up gloves will do!) and face masks.
Be part of something special in Thornton Heath.
We can’t wait to ‘grow’ with you!
