Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre, is set to host a series of workshops this summer in Swansea for its Little Seedlings Club. Magnificent Microgreens will take place on Sunday 3 July, and back for 2022 is Dobbies’ Summer Holiday Club sessions, perfect for keeping the little ones busy during the school break.
Dobbies’ Little Seedlings Club is a free children’s gardening club for children aged 4-10 in Swansea which explores the exciting ways children can connect to plants, wildlife and the environment, nurturing their minds with fun-filled activities.
The Magnificent Microgreens workshop will take a deep dive into the science behind the nutritious leafy greens, showcasing all the health benefits of eating these superfoods and how attendees can easily grow their own at home no matter the space by making their very own windowsill planter to take home and grow.
The not your average garden centre will also be demonstrating all the ways in which chefs use microgreens in the kitchen to help encourage kids to eat their greens.
Dobbies’ Summer Holiday Club sessions in Swansea will take place on 31 July and 21 August between 10:15-11:15 am. These interactive workshops will explore how children can create their very own summer sanctuary in the garden for plants and wildlife to flourish. Here attendees will take a closer look at the insects, birds and animals that call the garden home during the summer months, making bug hotels, learning interesting animal facts, and finding out all the ways we can make our garden into a wildlife haven.
Dobbies’ Partnership and Events Manager, Sarah Murray, explained: “Summer holidays are a great chance for the little ones to harvest a new passion for gardening, enjoy time with kids of a similar age and learn something new.
“Our free Little Seedlings workshops are open to all, and this summer we’re showing our young gardeners that anything is possible in their green space if they have the right knowledge and tools.”
Advance booking is required for the free events to secure your space. For more information about how children can get involved in these workshops at Dobbies’ Swansea store, visit the following links.
