The series of horticulture themed workshops will be the perfect opportunity to get little ones outdoors this school break.

The hour long workshops, running from 25 July to 12 August, will be jam packed with stimulating games and activities to help kids discover the wonders of their back garden. Along with a parent or guardian, kids can learn fun facts, and get creative with arts and crafts, all while making new friends.

In July, kids can have fun with arts and crafts as they decorate colourful pebbles for the garden and design eye-catching twig pots. There will also be prizes up for grabs as the little ones play a game of Beach Bingo.
