On Monday 21 November from 2-4pm, we're inviting London food garden members to meet us at the Kensington Gardens Allotment to find our more about our recently launched Growing for Change campaign and join May from the Help Nature Thrive project at the Royal Parks, on a walking tour through Kensington Gardens from the perspective of a beginner naturalist.

On this introductory tour with May, you can learn about the habitats the Royal Parks manage, from the trees, to the meadows, to the lakes, all to help wildlife flourish. Binoculars will be provided for those who wish to use them as we will be taking a closer look at birds too!

You'll also get the chance to network with other London food gardens and share your experiences and aspirations of Growing for Change to create community, climate and nature resilience.

An outline of the agenda and timings for the meet-up are:

•    2-2.30pm: Meet & greet at Kensington Gardens Allotment introducing the Growing for Change campaign
•    2.30-3.30pm: A circular nature & biodiversity walk guided by May Webber
•    3.30-4pm: Return and close at allotment garden for hot drinks & biscuits

** If you would like to have a poke around the allotment garden beforehand, you can do so from 1.30pm when Chris be there to welcome you.

Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. When not on the walking tour, there will be access to toilets and an outdoor sheltered space.
