Batty Day….#WildaboutGardens

Learn about bats and how to welcome them to you Garden.. with BrumBats.

As well as our regular half term activities we welcome, BrumBats, the Birmingham and Black Country volunteer group, who support bat care and conservation. They will be around to talk about and show us2010-brumbats-logo the wonders of our night time fliers.

This week is the annual #wildaboutgardens week for RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) and the Wildlife Trusts. The theme this year is ‘Stars of the Night’, working together to create a ‘batty’ neighbourhood.

Bats (and pumpkins) will be our them all week, but we’re lucky to have our local conservationists BrumBats on Thursday 27th.

Come down between 12 and 3 for batty info, stories, crafts and maybe (maybe….) even a real, sleepy bat.

Everyday during half term we’ll have some outdoor and indoor craft activities for young people and their grownups. Our themes are pumpkins and bats… we have plenty of both.

12 – 3pm Monday to Friday. £2 each for everyone over 5 years of age

(£8 family day ticket, Free to Season Pass holders)

Our summer of outdoor fun ‘Unplug and Play’, continues this week with a general theme of   trees and picnics. 

woodland trust logo http://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/We’re following the Woodland Trust’s  campaign of Inviting a tree to tea to celebrate summer and to show love for our many trees. Which one would you like to picnic under?

We’ll be making bunting to decorate your picnic spot, using clay to make fairy sized cups and saucers, finding faces in trees and making more faces with clay.

Chris BeeBee in story modeChrisBeeBee will be telling stories and singing songs at 2pm on Tuesday – a guaranteed
smile maker!

And of course  there’ll be more knitting and knotting everyday with our summer long project under the walnut tree.

Bring teddy and share a picnic… whether it’s in the mud kitchen or somewhere else around the garden
