Frogs, Tree Parties and Knitted Tents

Summer activities for families in the gardens have begun. On  Tuesdays , Wednesdays and Thursdays we have ‘guided’ activities, but we are open 7 days a week, so there are ‘self- guided’ activities for every day. You’re never too old to join in!

Here are some of the things you can do:
Doodle stations : pick up a pencil and doodle.  Inspired by the view or a flower? Sit on the bench, use the materials from the box  and sketch. The Greenhouse will become a temporary gallery. for summer.

Story Maze: the centre of the maze has always been a beautiful place for quiet contemplation. We will leave a box of books there. Feel free to sit down and read . On Family Activity days we’ll have  StoryTelling Time at 2pm.
Junior Gardening : Every Wednesday 12-3pm. Help the real gardeners look after the garden, enjoy planting, watering, weeding. Suitable for 4years upwards. No need to book.
Knit-knot tent: a summer long project to create a hanging tent for the walnut tree outside the walls. This is an opportunity for us to share and re-learn craft techniques of knitting, finger knitting and just being together.
