A weekend of active exploration, den building, nature crafts, fire skills, mud play and more awaits children and young people at the GLUE Garden in Shenley Lane in South Birmingham. GLUE stands for Growing and Learning in Urban Environments and the GLUE Garden is the organisation’s base, a community garden reclaimed from wasteland which both grows food and enables youngsters to learn.
The sessions at GLUE Garden, Shenley Lane, Birmingham B29 4HZ run 1-3pm on 25 and 26 July and are open to children of all abilities. They are part of the Happy Healthy Holidays program which is a government funded scheme to makes sure children in need over the summer have healthy food and physical activities to take part in. In Birmingham, the program is organised by Sport Birmingham, the Accord Group and The Active Wellbeing Society. Members of Children’s Quarter Co-operative including the GLUE Collective have been working with the organisers to make sure that disabled children and young people and those facing mental health, or other additional, needs are catered for.
