Imagine a beautiful shared space for gathering, playing, growing and relaxing.
This is exactly what local people are creating - we would love you to join us!
At our Festival of Everyone, we were lucky enough to be able to build a greenhouse with local residents. The construction took place outside the Barking Learning Centre in the town square, and passers by got involved by drilling, hammering and making tea. Following the successful completion of the build, we were able to donate the structure to Gascoigne Primary School.
Secret Garden is one of the first Open Corner projects launching in Spring. Do you have a green space near you? There are thousands of small pockets of green spaces in Barking and Dagenham. Can you help to turn some of them into lively social spaces for your neighbourhood?
If you would like to share ideas or want to talk about a potential Open Corner near you then please email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or pop into the Tea and Toast session where you can discuss potential Open Corner's projects with the team > 28th March at 10am - 12pm at 55 Ripple Road, Barking.
We got in touch with the school to see how we can team up, and we learned about their ‘Secret Garden’, which is a space they have on the school grounds. We would like to collaborate with and invite families and friends of the school to support the design of the green space.

This is an opportunity to get involved in a project with other residents, and make the most of what we can offer by working together. We could plant flowers, grow vegetables or even raise chickens. This is a unique chance to teach children about where things come from.
Does your child go to Gascoigne Primary School? Would you like to take part in helping design the layout of the ‘Secret Garden’?
