How to get bulb planting right.

31st October 10am to 3pm

This fascinating workshop will involve planting a wide range of bulbs of types which, if planted in suitable places, should come back each year. It will also cover how to buy bulbs and store them safely until planted, how to get a long season of flowering, and bulbs valuable to pollinators. The session is in Partnership with the London Environmental Educators' Forum LEEF & will be led by the Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park.

Booking below or via Linktree in our Insta Bio:

N.B. The image shows a hand trowel and spring flowering bulbs in the ground.

Gemma Hindi 30/11/2021

Last week we held the eighth LEEF Fellowship, where we gathered to honor four of our members with long and successful commitment and experience. They shared their journeys, they told us of their inspirations and their dreams, and they all had riches to share. Not least the delicious chocolate truffles made by Gemma Hindi. Gemma is gaining a name for herself in foraged food, and her LEEF Fellows' profile is here:

International School Grounds Alliance (ISGA) Conference, Stirling, September 2021 24/08/2021

The International School Grounds Conference is both 'live', in Stirling, Scotland, and online at the end of September. Lots about how the outdoor aspects of school support sustainability and sustainable learning, it looks absolutely amazing and well worth a look if you're working in a school or involved with schools:

EVENTS 19/08/2021

Everyone, Forest School Skills! Even those with L3 training need an update, inspiration, community, space to think and share ideas with others. Gemma Hindi (aka Earthwild), Maria Sprostranova and Richard Sylvester (Richstories) come together to bring us a day of Forest School magic on Ham Lands. We'll do some sustainable foraging and learn some stories to accompany what we find, we'll cook it over the fire, and also delve into storytelling and tool use, as well as other aspects of Forest School practice.

Photos from London Environmental Educators' Forum LEEF's post 20/07/2021

Phenomenal: calculating the carbon value of mature trees. Trigonometry is involved, and many of us cannot remember how to do the calculus, but it's amazing to know it's possible! For secondary school pupils!


The best LEEF social ever...the combination of rain, messed up trains and post-football trauma was bad for numbers, but we enjoyed the intimate company and the gorgeous environment. Thanks Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park for the hospitality, and the tour. Thanks to LEEF for the wine.

Secrets of a tree whisperer: ‘They get along, they listen – they’re attuned’ 02/06/2021

Trees are fellow beings who don't speak...but of course they do, just not in words, but in gasses, cells, nutrients, minerals, and, arguably, spirits. This lady spent her life finding out, and has written a book about it, which she describes in this article. We are running an event about trees: Trees for Life: biology, mythology and politics, on 20 July, more about that soon.

Pocahontas | Colors of the Wind | Disney Sing-Along 16/03/2021

Disney is a bit of a minefield, but Pocohontas does a bit of tuneful intersectional Environmental Education in this clip. My daughter is 6, and she introduced it to me. Quite like it, though I guess wrapped in the fable of Pocahontas it's pretty sad.....
