More about self-guided visit
Secondary school workshops

We can give opportunities for students to focus on practical outdoor experiences which enhance and extend their learning and we work with a number of secondary schools to provide lessons and activities to suit their needs. These have been for classes, or whole year groups, where we have delivered several different workshops to groups who have rotated through these during their visit.

Topics so far have included:

  • Soil testing
  • Plant identification
  • Environmental field studies
  • Plant propagation
  • A day in the life of a gardener
  • Art from nature
Special Educational Needs (SEN) workshops

Our garden is a perfect environment for all children to feel relaxed, have fun and access quality learning. We cater for children of all ages and abilities, and we can adapt existing workshops or create new workshops for your specific requirements.
