ONE SATURDAY A MONTH
11AM - 3PM
Our weekend digs are a great way to get outdoors for the day and enjoy a spot of gardening with us. Each month we'll be sharing our experience through a series of workshop tables, where we'll have pots, plants and seeds for you to take home so you can put your new found growing skills into practice!
Our sessions are suitable for all the family, with a range of tasks for the little ones to get stuck into too.
