Easter Holiday Activity – Shoebox Herb Gardens* – For children aged 4-11

Wednesday, 7th April 2021, 10:00 - 15:30

Easter Holiday Activity – Shoebox Herb Gardens* – For children aged 4-11
2 Sessions: 10 – 11.30 and 2 – 3.30 pm
Sowing your own herb garden and making a seed bomb!

Helpful herbs and surprising seed bombs!

In this workshop we will be sowing seeds in shoeboxes to grow our own sensory, edible and medicinal herb gardens.

Find out about the different herbs and their uses and see if you can find some in the SLBI garden.

Please bring two shoeboxes if you can as not all herbs like the same growing conditions.

We’ll also make our own seed bombs that you take away for guerilla gardening or gifting to your friends and family.

10 – 11.30 am and 2 – 3.30 pm

Tickets: £5 per child with one carer, refundable deposit (on attendance)
