For eight years Growing Local have hosted Garden Experience Workshops at our purpose build educational garden plot at Court Farm, Tillington. In 2018 workshops are funded by the Pippin Trust and Greggs.
Sessions include practical and creative activities enabling children to learn how to sow seed, plant, tend and harvest vegetables, tasting our produce around the plot as they learn. Working in small groups allows total participation in each task and enhances learning. The practical activities relate directly to National Curriculum requirements.
Workshops are available to schools and community groups throughout the late spring, summer term and early autumn. Workshops are for a maximum of 18 children. We can sometimes accommodate larger class sizes or groups by offering farm walks for half of your group if you book two workshops.
