Free online workshops - Teaching children about growing food and the natural world

Oak trees are dependent on that loud chattering bird, the Jay, to bury their acorns some way away so the young oak trees aren’t shaded out by their mother tree. This and other amazing facts about the natural world will be engaging local children in a series of free interactive online workshops organised by Northwick Park Community Garden. 

We have already been running online workshops for children with excellent feedback: ‘great interaction and very engaging’, ‘excellent structure, content and timing… a very interactive session which D likes very much!’

The workshops will focus on practical hands-on activities that will still be educational, but won't involve the children being glued to a computer screen. All the workshops we run are very interactive and good fun with a story and some music to finish. They will be organised around worksheets the children can use to explore outside, particularly in the Northwick Park Community Garden and report back on what they have found.

 

The final workshop in the series will run on Wednesday 5th May 5.30pm-6.15pm:

 

  • 5th May: Bees in spring - This workshop will give the children a chance to see which bees they can find outside. It will give them a chance to learn about the different bees and how they have different ways of living.

Workshops are aimed at children aged 4-11 years and if you would like your children to join please register by emailing workshops@northwickparkcommunitygarden.com
