"My two boys have spoken endlessly about how much they have enjoyed their gardening activities with Pascale (a modern day green fingered Mary Poppins) and this year my little 3 year old daughter joined them too. They come home with so much knowledge and facts about nature. It has instilled in them a love of the natural world and an eagerness to take care of it. The only complaint they had was that it was not long enough, which goes to show how interested they are. They cannot wait for future workshops as all three of them have had such a wonderful time. "
"Volunteering at Growing Space has been such a wonderful and inspiring experience. I thoroughly enjoy tending to the plants and helping out during holiday activities. The community is so welcoming and I have learnt so much about gardening from them. From tending to plants to fixing wiring, there is something here for everyone. I especially liked the Halloween workshop, where we carved pumpkins with fun designs. Every week I look forward to coming to the garden and enjoy watching the garden transform week-by-week. "
"The Growing Space is a beautiful and safe place within central London where children can experience and learn about how fruit and vegetables are grown. Our children are always excited to visit and we found the courses to be very informative and fun, The teachers are very well prepared and are very good at transferring that information to the children. We’ve been recommending it to our friends and look forward to attend more courses in the future. We feel that the Growing Space has become an integral part of the local community and very much look forward to its future development."
"My daughter truly enjoyed and had fun in all Nature & Bliss workshops and clubs and had an opportunity to safely connect and explore nature in a peaceful city oasis garden. Pascale took as much care to cultivate and nurture the children's minds (and those of the parents at times), as much as she took to cultivate and nurture the plants surrounding us all. I will never forget when she showed my daughter and taught her all the facts of a rare Stag Beetle, with a habitat in the garden, and how that knowledge slotted in a school field trip the following day, prompting my daughter to ask questions and be interested and engaged in her learning of her surrounding environment that day, boosting her confidence,"
""Pascale is wonderful. So experienced and amazing with the kids. Can’t wait for more time spend together."
""Pascale has been teaching gardening classes at our nursery school and she is absolutely Amazing!!! Her knowledge and passion for nature and young children are the perfect combination. The children love her classes and always have fun with her!"
