Description

Growing food is a great way for children to connect with the natural environment and to develop an appreciation for the food that they eat. It also happens to be heaps of fun! In this hands-on class, we will explore some easy and inexpensive ways to grow food at home, regardless of whether you have an acre of land or just a windowsill. Children (and grown-ups) will get their hands dirty with practical gardening and craft activities using recycled and repurposed objects. By the end of the class, each student will have made a variety of goodies to grow and use in their gardens at home.

The class is suitable for children aged 5 to 10 and children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Please note: the class cost covers both a child and 1 accompanying adult.

Absolutely fabulous! My 7yr old loved it! He was reluctantly taken there and turned out to be the most engaged. He made lots of great little things for the garden, and then has done a lot more gardening at home since!
