Get active and learn about nature!

Dig It Youth is a seasonal outdoor activity club run for young people at Growing Together Shoeburyness and Growing Together Rochford.  For ages 10 years and up, Dig It Youth is free for young people to attend. Dig It Youth will be running again in 2021.

It was a new opportunity and the friendships were amazing. It was so nice to meet new people and the guinea pigs! – Victoria

Dig It Youth runs from April to October, and is held on Wednesdays at Shoeburyness and Fridays at Rochford. Each session runs from 4pm to 6pm.

Activities on offer include something for everyone: if you’re an artist, you can try your hand at graffiti and brighten up the site, if you are green fingered, you can plant and grow fruit and vegetables, if you are a performer or writer, there are drama and poetry sessions. You can even help build a fire pit!

I like the guinea pigs, watering the garden, making pizzas and water fights!!!! – Tom, 11
