Eva Scherer was awarded the Silver Cross of Merit from the President of the Republic of Poland for her Childrens Programs on the 13th. August 2018

Junior Assistants

Like the majority of gardens, our Garden is also children friendly, but there is something more at NOG We love working with local schools. A group of Junior Assistants, a group of 4 young volunteer students, has been created after the visit of students from Bayswater Primary in November 2015. Eva Scherer supervises the junior assistants for 2 hours a week.
The Purpose of Junior Assistants involvement is to ;

  • Develop a love for nature by spending time and observing the NOG ecosystem
  • To learn how to care for plants
  • To enjoy the outcome of using vegetables and herbs for every day food/nutrition at home, and to share surplus with school.

Nature Never Sleeps

While the Junior Assistants were taking it easy on holiday, Nature kept on doing her part. Look at these carrots, courgette and cucumer.
