Come into our garden – with our new gardening team

Two young volunteers have come forward to run the gardening sessions in Retreat, the library’s courtyard garden.

Hear about them in their own words:

 We are very pleased to have been selected by the Friends of Tate South Lambeth Library to restore the garden and start running community projects. Our names are Gemma and Charlene, we both share a love of gardening and have an education background.

 So far we have focussed on clearing and cleaning up the garden to make it safe and ready to open on Saturday 7th August 2021 between 12-4pm. We are planning a meet and greet open garden event with a plant and seed swap/sale. We will be planting a plant in memory of Penny who took care of the garden previously before Covid. So please come along and see what’s growing and share your ideas. We’d love to meet you, hear your views on what you’d like and your interests for future events.

We are pleased to announce we are holding some family activities on:

 Monday 9th August 2021 between 12-2pm– Creating mini gardens

 Monday 23rd August between 12-2pm– Creating cress faces and painting stone bugs and garden markers

 Come along and meet Gemma and Charlene – the garden is an open, safe place. And we know you’ll get a warm welcome from our gardening couple.
