This year, the Centre is working on the exciting Superbloom project to create a stunning display of flower blooms at The Tower of London. More than 20 million seeds have been sown in the landmark’s moat, filling it with flowers through spring and summer to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.
Historic Royal Palaces and the gardening charity Thrive are encouraging children to join the celebration by growing their own blooms. Participants are learning more about the health benefits of growing wildflowers and creating their own displays to celebrate the Queen’s 70-year reign.
Sessions have now started at the Centre with local families busy digging and learning how to create spaces for the community to enjoy. They are learning how to sow and nurture seeds in school gardens and Bob’s Park, utilising nature to promote wellbeing as well as biodiversity.
The practical sessions will culminate in a visit for families to the Tower of London in the summer.
New summer programme with Chickenshed
