Are you a primary school teacher looking for a fun and challenging way to deliver your curriculum or educational needs?

Do you spend valuable time trawling through the internet, absorbing the subject matter and organising the delivery?

We specialise in delivering tailored workshops about all things to do with gardening. With both design and practical activity days for children from yrs 1-6, your class can cover a number of curriculum subjects from design and technology, maths and science through to minibeasts, growing vegetables and more.

Our programme can be uniquely tailored to cover current topics, such as WW2, and if a particular area of your school grounds needs attention we can use this as our practical objective. We bring along all the tools, plants, compost and tape measures needed to deliver an enriching day, leaving behind perhaps a butterfly area or a vegetable bed that the children have helped to create along with instructions on how to look after it.

Take a look at our workshops to see our wide range of
activities to choose from. See how we've been benefitting
schools from our case studies.

Or perhaps you need help designing a new area or school grounds.
