kids-gardening fun at Beechdale Garden Centre

Fruity February

Fruity February

This fun Nature Ninjas session will introduce children to growing their own with an emphasis on reaching your Five A Day. We’ll be looking at fruit and learning how they grow and how they make it onto our plates.

I say Potatoe you say Potata…

We’ll also be chitting potatoes in preparation for Marchs’ Grow Your Own Veg  workshop so if you have any spare empty egg boxes please do bring them along! Chitting simply means encouraging the seed potatoes to sprout before planting.

Keeping with our Potatoe theme we will be creating a fun potatoe head with ‘hair’ that will grow. Children will bring their Mr /Miss/Mrs/ Potatoe head home with them. 🙂
