Gardening skills

The gardening and horticultural workshops take place at the Cowley Club allotment. During lessons at MEP volunteer teachers embed horticultural language within the context of tending a garden, and growing and cooking vegetables. These sessions enable migrants to learn about and actively participate in growing fruit and vegetables, followed by preparing them to eat. This helps to promote a healthy lifestyle through physical activity and eating nutritional food. It also gives migrants practical and positive activities to engage in which help to promote self-confidence and well-being.
