Little Green Fingers programme teaching under-5s how to grow their own fruit and veg

It’s never too early to get your kids involved in the garden and letting them help the family grow their own. Recognising the benefits to getting kids involved in garden projects, The Calthorpe Project have created a Little Green Fingers programme especially for under-5s.

Little Green Fingers, gardening and environmental stay and play enables children to dig in their own garden growing fruit and vegetables to eat. During cold days, planting takes place in the polytunnel, and arts and crafts takes place in The Calthorpe Project’s early years play room.

Held every Monday from 11am-3pm at The Calthorpe Project in London’s King’s Cross, Little Green Fingers is open to both kids and their parents or childminders.

The Calthorpe Project exists to improve the physical and emotional wellbeing of those who live, work or study in Camden and surrounding areas.

The community garden and centre also run a creche for toddlers, aged 1-3, as well as a co-working cafe for parents who can join in workshops, courses and networking events while their kids play in the creche.
