Creating A Growing Gift

There’s so much hidden magic that goes on underneath the soil, including how plant roots grow. It’s great to be able to show kids what a plant looks like both above and below the ground so here’s a simple way to create a cross section view.

Tomato Fun

Cherry tomatoes are delicious bite sized tomatoes that love growing when the weather is warm. They’re great for a healthy snack in lunch boxes, to include in a salad or for the kids to make fun food with!

Chasing the Rainbow this Autumn

Our gardens provide us with a kaleidoscope of colours, particularly when deciduous trees put on their spectacular show of autumn foliage.

Get the kids out of the house during April and go on a leaf hunting expedition. How many different colours and shapes of leaves can you collect? Display the leaves by sticking them onto some paper in a rainbow shaped arch or colour wheel.

Growing Good Garden Grants

A dedicated gardening space in the school playground, whether it’s big or small or on the ground or in raised beds or pots, can create an effective teaching tool. In addition, it provides additional opportunity to get kids outside the classroom to benefit from fresh air and physical activity.

Vegies for the Easter Bunny

The Easter bunny will love vegies like radish and carrots (think of all the plants that Peter Rabbit™ would pinch from Mr McGregor’s garden!). It’s easy for kids to start these plants in a small raised garden bed or even their very own pot or trough. So come on... let's get gardening!
