Come and visit the richest classroom of all, Nature. We run sessions for children of all age and abilities. With a forest, wild flower meadow, ponds, greenhouse and vegetable patch, we have a variety of opportunities for exploration and challenge as well as in depth real world study of habitats, plants and creatures. We are very happy to fit around your group’s requirements and intended outcomes as well as having a large number of established sessions to offer. Sessions can be booked Mon-Fri 10am-3pm. For an indication of the sorts of sessions we offer please see below. Sessions are 1.5 hours long and cost £150. All equipment is supplied. There is a maximum of 32 children per session.

Environmental Education

• QCA science schemes of work come alive, from rocks and soils to plants and habitats and adaptation. Sessions are hands on and participatory offering opportunities for the children to explore the garden for themselves and to learn through games and activities as well as discussion.

• Add a bit of magic to your literacy lessons – from a Flat Stanley Egyptian treasure adventure, to following Stick Man through the woods or Going on a Bear Hunt, the garden is a perfect space for inspiring imaginations.

• Wild about food? Experience outdoor cooking, grow and harvest your own food. Test your sense of smell with different herbs. Plant a seed to take home.

• End of term treat – come enjoy the space and take part in a treasure hunt.

 Forest School

Positive, challenging and engaging; forest school sessions include activities such as shelter building, tool use, fire lighting, blindfold exploration, species identification and team games. Whilst containing many explicit links to the national curriculum, and teaching participants much about the world around them, the primary focus is on raising self-esteem and understanding, developing group work skills and contributing to physical and mental well-being. All sessions include achievable challenges, a mix of individual and group activities, and provide the child with something to take home or back to school to stimulate conversation. Whole classes can be catered for but best results and more physically challenging activities are achieved with groups of up to 15. Sessions run for 1.5 hours and cost £150.

“Forest School  is my favourite kind of school” (yr 3 pupil, Larkhall Primary School).

Birthday Parties

2 hours of the garden being yours! We will provide a led activity of your choice (treasure hunt, obstacle course, arts and crafts, bush craft, toasting marshmallows over a fire) and facilitate the use of the garden and it’s resources. It is recommended to keep group sizes to 20 maximum (15 if doing a fire) as indoor space is quite limited. Birthday parties cost £165

Environmental Play Project

Go wild or unwind at the garden. Child centered natural and imaginative play activities are available to individuals, groups and parties. Have fun racing snails, hunting for treasure, or digging in the sand and mud pits. Get imaginative and dress up, have your face-painted and much more.
