Youngsters learn about horticulture and help out as the New Leaf botanical garden project comes closer to completion.

When completed, the garden will tell the story of the evolution of plants. On the afternoon of August 22, 2013, a celebration was held at the New Leaf shop beside West Dulwich station on Thurlow Park Road, SE21, to mark the completion of New Leaf’s first Summer AQA programme of one day courses, “Introduction to Horticulture.”
