This Half-Term put down your electronic device and spend time outside, playing, creating and exploring at Borde Hill Garden.
Younger visitors can enjoy a Nature Trail (FREE with Garden admission) to find out about the birds and bugs that make the Garden their home, as well as the colours, shapes and smells of the natural world.
There will also be other activities on selected days between 11am-3pm, including crafts to make and take home. Why not make a beautiful birdbox or decorate a plant pot and fill with soil and sunflower seeds to take home and watch them grow.
