Connecting urban children and families with nature

TGC is a charity and non-profit organisation.

We provide urban children and adults with transformative outdoor experiences devised to encourage active lifestyles, promote self-discovery, inspire growth and stimulate respect for nature.

We’re delighted to let you know that we are busy planning 4 days of Acorn Club at Gillespie Park Ecology Centre next to Arsenal tube this coming half term. 
1st-4th June 2021 
09.30-3pm each day. 
  • For all children aged 6-11
  • The Acorn Club is run by The Garden Classroom’s team of passionate Facilitators & Forest School Leaders. 
  • Each day is different and full of engaging outdoor activities.
  • Activities include bug hunting, pond dipping, baking, forest school crafts (including using hand tools), games, den building and more. 
  • Ideal for children who like to get out and about in nature and like to be creative.
