Our workshops are perfect for early learning, community centres, holiday programmes, festivals and events. We can stay for an hour or even 6 depending on your requirements. All workshops are adult friendly & in most cases find adults having lots of fun with the kids.
Growing Green Thumbs aim to excite and educate kids about their environment. We teach them how to reduce their carbon footprint in an age / stage appropriate manner, tailored for your unique environment.
Seasonal workshops will inspire your students to make a positive impact on their environment. We can show how to compost, worm farm, manage waste, conserve water, grow organic food and connect to nature – all at your venue.
Customizing your time with us is a great idea. We are more than happy to discuss your requirements to get the best from your venue space and time.
