Join us for the latest in our Days of Learning series, A Kinder Way to Garden, in collaboration with the Walworth Community Gardening Network, and discover the methods we use to keep our garden, and local biodiversity, thriving – and pick up some skills and knowledge you can use to green your own space. From composting to planting, this event aims to change our perceptions on waste and reuse, and ornamentation and beauty – and demystify what it means to be organic. The day will include:

A tour of the Garden and our priorities and systems

Talks on biodiversity, local wildlife, composting, and more, from a series of guest speakers (see below)

A practical session out in the Garden

A complimentary vegan lunch, thanks to the Walworth Community Gardening Network.

We welcome you to engage and participate in this welcoming, inclusive space.

This event is free for local residents within SE17, SE5, and SE1, but incurs a refundable £10.00 booking fee that will be returned to you after the day, provided you attend. We may open bookings to a wider area, so please check back at a later date or follow us on social media to be notified of this.

Please note that the day will start at 11.00 sharp, so we request you arrive in good time – refreshments will be available from 10.30.

A year ago, we welcomed a Syrian family to South East London and since then we have supported them to build a new life here. We have become great friends.

With the refugee crisis getting worse, we want to bring another family to safety here. Under the Community Sponsorship scheme, we can do this if we build a strong and committed team.

We need new volunteers to join us for a second sponsorship. If you are interested, come to our public meeting.

At the event you will learn more about how Community Sponsorship works from existing Peckham Sponsors Refugees volunteers and from members of the first refugee family.

The evening will be compered by BBC Radio 4 personality, Claudia Hammond.

The conference will be held on Saturday 7 March 2020 between 9am to 5pm at the William Booth College, Champion Park, Denmark Hill, Camberwell, SE5 8BQ.

Council officers will be on hand to answer your questions and help you understand how bills are calculated.
