Join us in the greenhouse for a gardening session and free lunch during our open greenhouse day on Sunday 6th May 2012.
We’ll be planting herbs and lettuce in the greenhouse from 11.30am to 2pm, with a free lunch (vegetarian Indian food including beetroot and cabbage grown on site) at 1pm. If anyone would like to help cook, please turn up at 11am.
Support for gardening activities will be provided by Streetscape, who train apprentices for horticultural work, and are currently based at the park.
There will also be a plant sale so come along and buy reasonably priced vegetable plants that you can grow at home.
Myatt’s Fields Park Project and Lambeth Parks would like to invite you to an OPEN MEETING to talk about current use of our football pitch, tennis courts and basketball court.
The meeting will be held in the Park Depot (opposite public toilets) on Thursday 10th May 5.30 – 6.30 pm.
Please join us if you want to discuss any issue regarding sport facilities of Myatt’sFields Park.
