Gardening with children
Gardening is a great way to get children outdoors and to develop an interest in nature and the environment. Growing and picking their own fruit and veg is a great way to encourage children to eat more of them.
The Caley has an increasing number of activities focusing on gardening with children. We hold an annual Childrens Spring Show for school and club entries with a range of fun activities throughout the weekend, plus junior classes in the main Spring Show.
For anyone- children, parents or teachers- the Society offers a CD ROM called Plant and Grow. This CD provides a year long programme of gardening activities for children. It has been developed with input from both gardeners and children and can be used in both school and home environments. Plant and Grow can be purchased for £5 including postage. For further information, contact Administrator.
