Learning What we offer School visits School visits to the garden We offer a bespoke, tailor-made education programme here at the CPG – for all Key Stages, including EYFS – to celebrate and learn about the wonderful world of plants. With this, we can provide a unique and valuable learning experience that, not only meets curriculum objectives but also is suited to interests and needs to you and your class. A typical education visit includes a tour of the Garden, with a focus on your topic, a chance to handle a variety of plant artefacts and an opportunity for each child to plant a seed to take home. Sessions are available for full-day (£8) or half-day (£6) per child. Adults are free. Book a session here. We have some provision to offer free sessions to a limited number of schools. Please contact our education team to discuss this option. See below for workshops we have delivered. If you are looking for something different, we can plan a personalised workshop, just for you.
