Name of Event: Building a sensory garden at Shoreditch adventure playground

Volunteer Role: Volunteers with the support of staff to create an enjoyable and fully accessible sensory garden for young people who attend the playground. We cater for a diverse group of young people who often come from challenging back grounds. The sensory garden will give the young people the opportunity to experience a calm and relaxing environment where they can let go of stress and reflect, meditate, contemplate and talk.

Tasks may include:

  • Cut back the weeds
  • Dig over and level the ground
  • Lay a membrane to prevent weeds returning
  • Lay a pea shingle (or similar) surface
  • Build raised beds or possibly plant hedge along fence line
  • Plant if possible (time of year allowing)

When: Wednesday 14 to Thursday 15 March

Where:​ Shoreditch Adventure Playground Mintern Street N1 5EF

Volunteer Places: 10-15
