This amazing charity works with young people across the UK in developing emotional strength and real life skills to carry them through life. In this often divided World, real connection with nature and practical life skills make a huge difference. To add to their raft of educational resources LIFEbeat wants to offer a series of educational gardens at Stanford Hall, Leicestershire. These gardens will be used to offer ecological education for LIFEbeat camps and local school children for years to come.

We’ve started laying out a permaculture garden, a formal potager and a “no dig” growing area. Now we’re looking to bring in a diverse team of volunteers to get the job finished.

Can you join us from February to April 2018? Accommodation, food and great learning experiences provided!

On our first MeetUp at Stanford Hall on Sunday we created a straw wall root growing system, planted parsnips, carrots, bunching onions and giant black scorzonera, it’s now time to get the beds planted up. On Tuesday we’ll be getting the correct mulches on our beds for this seasons crops and planting out our first transplants.

See the Events Page for more details.

Happy growing season!
