Monday

Did we have a blast of last Thursday !!

Last Thursday the 21st April,  our Nature Kids group started our very exiting 
Nature space kids Rocket seeds experiment





In September 2015 , 2kg of rocket seeds were flown to the International Space Station (ISS) on Soyuz 44S where they will spend several months in microgravity before returning to Earth in March 2016. The seeds have been sent as part of Rocket Science, an educational project launched by the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and the UK Space Agency.

Grow Mayow Community Garden will be one of up to 10,000 schools to receive a packet of 100 seeds from space, which they will grow alongside seeds that haven’t been to space and measure the differences over seven weeks. The Nature space kids won’t know which seed packet contains which seeds until all results have been collected by the RHS Campaign for School Gardening and analysed by professional biostatisticians.

The out-of-this-world, nationwide science experiment will enable the children to think more about how we could preserve human life on another planet in the future, what astronauts need to survive long-term missions in space and the difficulties surrounding growing fresh food in challenging climates.

Iris Borgers says: “We are very excited to be taking part in Rocket Science. This experiment is a fantastic way of teaching our Nature kids to think more scientifically and share their findings with the whole community.
Rocket Science is just one educational project from a programme developed by the UK Space Agency to celebrate British ESA astronaut Tim Peake’s Principia mission to the ISS and inspire young people to look into careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects, including horticulture.

WELCOME TO THE GARDEN






















Saturday

WELCOME TO OUR SITE






The mission of Grow Mayow Community Garden Project

To create a community hub that is a source of education and enthusiasm for growing and nature.
Our aim is to encourage inner city gardening with a view to reducing the carbon output involved in food growing and enjoying the garden, nature or just to enjoy this urban green space.


We host weekly sessions from Monday to Friday at the garden,for both adults and children


We also host several events each year to expose the wider community
Our ethos is sustainability – reduce, reuse recycle – and inclusiveness – we want garden users to reflect the diversity of the neighbourhood.


At Grow Mayow you will see many examples of organic growing in practice. This includes companion planting – putting beneficial plants side-by-side, rainwater harvesting system, and recycling of materials.

As well as considering permaculture in our food growing, we aim to apply the idea of permaculture and interconnecting elements to our work away from the site.
This includes encouraging others to get involved in our projects.




We hope you will have the chance to visit us in person, to wander around, to sit, relax and enjoy the garden.
and you can contact us if you like more information
