Family and Friends nature garden Club
Parents, friends and children meet on the first Friday of the month, after school in the Nature Garden.
Gardening with your children and friends not only provides the benefit of exercise, exploration and fresh food, it also fosters communication, builds strong relationships, and offers an opportunity to work towards a common goal.
We have been tidying, pruning cutting back hedges and are planning to plant lots of spring bulbs at our next session.
