The workshops begin at 10am at the front desk of Rileys Garden Centre, where you will be greeted and shown through to the activity stations.
By 12 noon the workshop will be complete and each child will be awarded with a certificate.

Workshop leaders will explain and demonstrate the seed sowing. The children will sow their own seeds and be advised on how to nature their seedlings.
A member of the team will discuss ht plant or vegetable of the day with the children. Each child will be given a picture of the plant or vegetable and will be encouraged to label and colour the different parts.
