Like the majority of gardens, our Garden is also children friendly, but there is something more at NOG We love working with local schools. A group of Junior Assistants, a group of 4 young volunteer students, has been created after visit of students from Bayswater Primary in November 2015. Eva Scherer supervises the junior assistants for 2 hours a week.
The Purpose of Junior Assistants involvement is to ;

  • Develop a love for nature by spending time and observing the NOG ecosystem
  • To learn how to care for plants
  • To enjoy the outcome of using vegetables and herbs for every day food/nutrition at home, and to share surplus with school.
