Families Growing Together

Enjoy the outdoors with your children and meet other families at our Growing Together community gardens in Shoeburyness, Westcliff and Centre Place Family Centre.

Pick up some gardening tips and share the joy of planting, nurturing and harvesting fresh fruit and vegetables with your children. There are other activities on offer too, from healthy eating and cookery sessions to creative workshops – available at the gardens or online. Your children will love getting dirty in our mud kitchen and enjoy playing with others in the sand pit. You will also get to help us create a magical woodland storytelling area to inspire their imaginations!

Drop in between 9:30am and 3:30pm on Mondays at Trust Links Shoeburyness, Fridays at Trust Links Westcliff or Tuesday 1pm – 3pm at Centre Place Family Centre. Some families choose to join an entire session, whilst others prefer to drop in for a couple of hours. You choose!
