We have been working to build a new garden for all our learning activities at Normanby. After many months of hard work, it is ready just in time for this beautiful weather!
The new space is designed for groups to learn about gardening through hands on activities, conducting scientific experiments and making observations.
We have developed a new garden workshop called “Science in the Garden”. It is suitable for KS1 and 2 children. This workshop encourages children to explore the gardens and discover the Normanby Park potting shed. Then conduct scientific experiments to learn about soil, growing conditions and plants. Record observations and use the evidence to present findings to the group. Children will use gardening tools in this hands-on practical workshop.
We will also offer bespoke sessions for groups of older children or adults. There is lots of evidence that suggests gardening is beneficial to our wellbeing. See our ‘about’ page for contact details to book.
The plants are ready to go in, the new garden is ready now. There is a potting shed, raised beds, poly tunnels and a greenhouse to work in. Your group will also get to do some gardening inside the walled garden and tropical greenhouse.
