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!’
