Start children gardening at RHS Garden Harlow Carr
Harlow Carr offers school groups a wide variety of exciting environments to explore including meadows, woodland, kitchen gardens and much more.
On guided visits, primary, secondary and SEN school groups can take part in a wide range of workshops, which cover many areas of the school curriculum. Teachers can download lesson plans for the workshops, as well as pre-visit and post-visit lesson ideas. In addition we have a range of resources for self-guided visits, with lots of ideas to explore the Garden at your own leisure.
Schools on a guided visit are hosted in the Bramall Learning Centre. This innovative learning centre was opened in 2010 and is one of the UK's greenest buildings.
The building is a fabulous example of sustainability. It’s many features can teach us how to work closely with the environment, while the Montague Burton Teaching Garden and Learning Centre Greenhouse can provide pupils with the opportunity to look at carnivorous plants, see our vegetable beds, experience pond dipping and carry out practical horticultural activities.
