Basic Botany & Practical Horticultural Skills for Schools

Petrified by plants?

Flustered by flowers?

Horrified by habitats?

Don't be! Join us at the Botanic Garden to enjoy an activity-packed, hands-on day exploring the plants in our beautiful collections. The session will offer participants the chance to get to grips and gain confidence with real plants and basic botany. At the end of the day you will leave with plenty of ideas for developing activities back in the classroom or the school grounds.

Participants will pull apart flowers, dissect seeds, and have a go at planting. You will have the opportunity to explore the Garden, while experimenting with techniques for exploring in your own school setting.

Course fees £75, including refreshments and a sandwich lunch.
