Nature Play

We are delighted that Margon van Tuyl, who has run conservation projects for young people for many years, has kindly volunteered to run a Nature Play and Gardening Club aimed at under fives and their parents/carers.  We hope this will encourage our next generation of gardeners.

When?  Every Tuesday 10-12.30 (including picnic lunch) during term time.  There will be no nature play on tuesday 2 and 9 July 2013.

Summer Nature Play & gardening will be on Tuesday 16, 23, 30 July and 6 August.       Please contact Margon to book your place.

Where?  At the Royal Community gardens, Myreside Rd.  Meeting at the portocabin.

Summer 2012 pilot sessions.

Bad Weather?  Sessions will not run in gales but generally we can still have fun on cold and slightly wet days.  Margon will text all those who who have expressed an interest if a session is cancelled.

Costs/Bookings?  There is no need to book;  these sessions will run as a drop in, and we will collect a £3 donation per child per session.  This will go towards purchase of refreshments, resources and equipment.

Contact?  Please feel free to contact Margon if you have any questions: margon.van-tuyl@virgin.net.

What do we do?  Some nature play in a woodland area of the garden (often involving, water, mud, trees etc) will be followed by a gardening or nature activity.  Most people bring a picnic and we eat together afterwards.  Generally we move through different areas of the garden from woodland to vegetable plots to orchard.

Parents/Carers:  Your child remains your responsibility at all times.

What do we bring?  Please bring a packed lunch if you want to stay for lunch afterwards. Please feel free to bring a basket and a watering can if you have them as our equipment supplies are still a little sparse.   We will supply ropes, tarpaulin, a hammock and various pots/jugs for water play.
