Home School Session: Autumn Seeds and Soup

Are your children home educated? Do you love to take learning outside?

At this seasonal family education session we will learn about seeds and pollination, collect and save seeds around our garden, and finally harvest vegetables to make a delicious soup for our lunch – all in the inspirational setting of Brockwell Greenhouses.

This hands on, outdoor education session is aimed at children aged 4 – 9 yrs (KS1 & LKS2), although activities will be inclusive and enjoyable for all the family, and younger siblings are welcome to attend.

For further information, please email Helen: education@brockwellgreenhouses.org.uk

Squash Roast Up

During Urban Food Fortnight, for this Saturday lunch, we are going to fire up our cob oven and roast the yummy courgettes, marrows and squashes we’ve grown in our gardens. Seasoned with our garlic, onions, tomatoes and herbs and served with some home-baked sourdough bread, it should be pretty delicious.  For pudding, we’ll have grapes grown in our Upper Greenhouse.

You’ll also be able to marvel at our our ornamental Gourds which will be getting bigger and better by the day in our Gorgeous Gourds exhibition in our lower Greenhouse. Check out the swan gourd, the bottle neck gourd and many more!

There are just a few tickets left to buy on the gates today.  Find us in the lower garden by the Cob Oven!
