Writing and Growing

WordWell's writing and nature workshops are linked to the seasons, the senses and the relationships between growing, nature, gardens and transformation.

Recently we were invited by Eleanor Sier, the Education Officer at Fulham Palace, to work with children from local schools to produce poems for Apple Day, for the fruit trees in the Walled Garden. 

Gardens and Writing have a lot in common - a garden grows naturally and easily given the right conditions and words flow onto the page with space and time.

At the Children’s Book Festival in the Walled Garden at Luton Hoo in 2012,  The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett was the inspiration for writing and drawing activities.


These are some of the drawings and writing by the children and families who came along.
