A summary
The Big Grow Day will be an opportunity for children, playworkers, youth workers, volunteers & community members to join forces to move soil, prepare beds & sow seeds to enable the playground to grow more fruit & vegetables throughout the year. The afternoon will be an opportunity to meet new people, get your hands dirty and support and enjoy a valuable community space, the adventure playground. The event will be perfect preparation for the Good to Grow Day, a national weekend of action from Friday 21st to Monday 24th April for edible gardens to celebrate the new growing season.
About your mentor
Somerstown Adventure Playground
Adventure play
'An adventure playground at its heart belongs to the children who use it.' Somerstown Adventure Playground alongside five other adventure playgrounds across the city of Portsmouth provides a space dedicated to children's freely chosen play, where skilled playworkers are on hand to ensure, enable and facilitate a space that is developed organically for the children who use the setting. Somerstown Adventure Playground is a stimulating space with wooden structures, loose parts from tyres, wooden pallets to oil drums, swings & sand to allow for spontaneous free expression of children’s innate drive to play. An adventure playground provides an environment where children can experiment, push their boundaries, try and fail, and try again. Children and young people need to learn to assess and manage risks, not be insulated from them entirely. In doing so, they develop self-esteem, confidence, and resilience: ‘I can do this’. Playworkers act as advocates for children & young people on the playground, within the community & beyond.

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
