Education

We offer a wide range of garden sessions and workshops for schools and community groups. What offer changes with the seasons and we welcome groups of all ages and abilities.

Some of the subjects we cover are: urban habitats, lifecycles, plant structure, minibeasts, climate change, and pondlife.

This is an example of a lifecycle session we offer:

The Lifecycle of Amphibians
Starting with supervised pond dipping (weather and seasonally dependent - frogs, toads and newts should be active from March onwards.)
A tank is provided for closer inspection. We will explain a frog's lifecycle and then students are asked to draw/ copy 4 stages.This can also be run alongside a mini-beast hunt where students seek out the different species which live in the garden.

We run a range of arts and creative workshops which help participants to learn about plants and wildlife through drawing and observation.

We have a 'Dry Garden', acid bed, winter garden, rose pergola, and wildlife area and are happy to talk about planting ideas.
