  • Active Learning Outdoors

(a series of 4 seasonal workshops which can be done individually or as a group).

Each seasonal workshop contains interdisciplinary activities which can be used at the Botanic Garden or other locations. Many suggested activities support outdoor learning. Each workshop is participatory so suitable clothes/shoes for outdoor wear are essential.

  • Autumn
  • Winter
  • Spring
  • Summer
  • Wee Wonders of the World

Discover the unexpected pleasures, the beauty and the importance of our natural surroundings.  Learn respect for the environment and engage the imagination through appealing activities for children using simple investigative skills.

  • Grandpa's Garden

(A Botanic Garden special)
This is an introduction to our new programme which looks at the seasonal changes and jobs we need to do in Grandpa's garden.
Outlining the structure of the session, we will discuss how learning from the programme can be extended back in your own setting, exploring pre- and post-visit activities and ways of taking the outdoors back inside to continue the learning.
