Growing sessions for children! Plants, Nature, gardening, getting a bit muddy and learning about creatures too!

Allotment Tots and Young Growers | Outdoor Toddler Groups Coventry

Nature and Gardening in a forest , wood, allotments, parks and other outdoor places, is great for health and wellbeing! Gardening is not only a healthy, fun and fulfilling activity that any adult and children can enjoy together but it will also help the little ones develop new skills plus build confidence and communication skills. 

Sessions:

Suitable for:

  • Allotment Tots - 18 months - 4 years
  • Young growers - 4 - 11 years

We want children of all ages to fall in love with gardening from the get-go and so have developed our Allotment Tots and Young Growers Programmes to encourage kids to get their hands dirty, enjoy the soil, watch things grow and maybe even eat some new foods! 

The hour and a half long sessions are aimed at pre-school children from 18 months plus for Allotment Tots and from 4-11 years for Young Growers. 

It will take place at our fantastic ZEN Community Garden in Lakeview Allotments on the Allesley Old Road, from 10am - 11.30am. 

Everyone can get involved in planting, digging, sowing, watering, composting and harvesting. We may go a bug hunt, see if we can spot Herbert the goldfish or go on a wildlife walk around the site. 

Please Dress for the weather! There is minimal shelter so come armed with warm underlayers, waterproof jacket, trousers and wellies. 

There will be a squash and biscuit break - PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN SNACKS.  Group size is limited to 12 children (max 2 children per adult) and all children must be supervised at all times by a responsible adult.
