The Mini Gardeners Club

Join the Mini Gardeners Club to engage in carefully curated workshops featuring a range of guided garden activities to get kids outdoors and growing. Each session is designed to support parents to make the most of the outdoors with their own Mini Gardeners. Suitable for nursery and primary-age children.

This year you can find us at: Arlington National Trust, Barnstaple Library and Landkey Primary School.

Get stuck into nature crafts, learn basic garden maintenance skills, take part in a group garden project, freely explore the beautiful outdoor play spaces and enjoy some quality outdoor time with your little ones. Sessions include a take away a Mini Gardeners at home project each week, a woodland snack and story time.

Activities are created and facilitated by Tatyana and Shannon who will be there to guide you through the activities, sharing their knowledge and love for education and the outdoors. New blocks of activity will be shared across our social channels @theminigardenersclub, and updates on this page. Sign up to the newsletter to be the first to know.
