Meet Grandpa, our green-fingered puppet and follow the seasons through his interactive story.  Help Grandpa look after his garden with practical hands-on tasks. Discover what vegetables he is growing in his garden and meet some of the creatures that live there too. Children will learn about gardening through activities such as handling real tools (in miniature), sowing seeds, and maybe hunting for the gnomes that also live in Grandpa’s Garden.
