‘Little Buds’ Family Gardening Club: SOW & GROW
Jun 27 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]‘Little Buds’ is our family friendly Gardening Club, designed to get green-fingered little ones aged 4+ outdoors and enjoying nature in the beautiful grounds at Borde Hill. The club concept is simple – to inspire children and their families to learn more about gardening, grow your own (GYO) and how to look after wildlife. What could be more important than developing skills that will last a lifetime and promote the benefits of healthy eating and natural living?

Join Suzanne Mark from Treehoppers Forest Kindergarten at Borde Hill, and Paulina Hechenleitner, a horticulturist and plant scientist who trained at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh and Kew, who will lead the group in a range of fun and engaging gardening and nature-themed activities. Children will be able to plant, play and get creative, and parents can take-home tips for their own garden.

The sessions include hands-on gardening, vegetable growing and inspiring craft activities that will vary according to the season. Children will be able to take home planted seeds, bulbs and their own crafts: experiences designed to inspire and educate.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Session 1 SOW & GROW
The session will focus on sowing a quick-growing crop and how to look after it. We will discuss different containers to grow seeds, and how we can be more environmentally friendly and sustainable. We will also design and make our own watering can from a plastic milk bottle – perfect for small plants and small hands![/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”13529″ img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]Tickets
Children (4-10yrs): £9.50 (Non-Members), £8.00 (Members)
Parents/Guardians: FREE

Ticket price includes FREE child admission to the Garden on that day (adults to pay)

Little Buds Gardening Club will take place at the Treehoppers site within Cuckoo Corner.

Children’s Outdoor Theatre: Mr Stink

Children's Outdoor Theatre: Mr Stink

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_column_text]David Walliams’ best-seller Mr Stink is coming to Borde Hill Garden with an open air theatre production staged by Heartbreak Productions.

Description:
You’re invited to celebrate Annabelle’s 10th birthday, hosted by everyone’s favourite MP candidate, Janet Crumb! (Almost) everyone is welcome… that is, everyone apart from Chloe’s particularly smelly new friend, Mr Stink.

One perfectly normal afternoon in an average English town two restless souls unite on a park bench – one of them the lonely 12 year old Chloe Crumb and the other an incredibly smelly homeless man. Oh, and let’s not forget his loyal dog, the Duchess. Chloe’s curiosity and kindness pave the way for this extraordinary and rewarding friendship that takes them to the heady heights of live television and Downing Street via a garden shed.

Pack a picnic, grab a chair and dress for the weather. Packed with fun, humour and a heart-warming message, this touching tale provides the perfect family entertainment.

Performed on the South Lawn against the backdrop of the Elizabethan Mansion House, Heartbreak Productions’ version of this popular children’s book is suitable for children aged 7+.

Refreshments will be available throughout the performance.
Running time: 2 hours[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”5px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”11567″ img_size=”large” add_caption=”yes”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_btn title=”Book now” color=”primary” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fbuy.myonlinebooking.co.uk%2Fbordehill%2Fbuy.aspx%3Ftid%3D73||target:%20_blank|”][vc_column_text]Booking essential
