What is National Children’s Gardening Week all about?
National Children’s Gardening Week is an annual event that usually takes place at the end of May. This year the dates are 28th May – 5th June.
It’s an opportunity to get kids inspired and enthused about gardening, with a programme of fun events, giveaways and news to explore. Families, schools and community groups can all join in, and there’s often something happening at your local garden centre too.
National Children’s Gardening Week also supports the fantastic Greenfingers charity, which provides wonderful gardens for children in hospices to enjoy.
Spread the word about this year’s schools competition!
This year there’s a brilliant schools competition to get involved with, in partnership with school gardening champion Lee Connelly, aka Skinny Jean Gardener. The challenge for schools is to grow and decorate as many grass caterpillars as they can, which is a fab kids gardening project that’s suitable for all ages. There’s a wonderful range of prizes on offer, including gardening equipment, gift vouchers and solitary beehives to help schools embrace gardening and take care of local wildlife. Perhaps you could encourage your local school to join in?
Great kids gardening projects
National Children’s Gardening Week is the perfect time to get kids busy with some fun garden projects. Here are a few of my favourites to get you started.
The National Children’s Gardening Week website also has a brilliant Things to do section full of great ideas.
You can also check out my gardening with children section of the blog for even more inspiration. And you might like to take a look at my book *A Year of Nature Craft & Play which includes lots of lovely kids gardening activities.
