Allotment Church - Growing for God!
New dates for this year!
Last year we took on an allotment and hope to take people of all ages down to have a go at growing. At the moment we are running parent and child sessions for under 5s (older siblings are welcome though). We also run a drop-off session for children in reception-year 6. See below for dates and how to book.
We do not charge for these sessions, but donations would be very much appreciated to help with the cost of running the allotment. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about making a donation.
Parents and children will have a chance to sow seeds, pot plants, prune, water and weed (jobs dependent on needs at the time). We also have an area just for children to dig in and a mud kitchen to play with as well. We then finish with a snack and story time. Children will also be able to take home something they have planted and often some of the produce if there is any available.
Each session is 1.5hours, snacks will also be provided, but please bring your own drinks.
For safety reasons, please only bring 2 children per adult, you are responsible for your own child/ren at all times during the session.
The address for the allotments is Bowers Ln, Guildford GU4 7ND, the entrance is next to the car park for the nature reserve.
Sessions may be cancelled in the event of bad weather.
